im scheduled for surgery to remove a kidney stone in 2 days and also put a new stent and i cant even sleep i felt like i was having shortness of breath so i went to urgent care she took an xray and now it show i have an enlarged heart but the ekg are ok so now will i see a cardiologist and can they still use anastesha for the operation
Urologist: Dr. Scott, Doctor replied 8 months ago

You can have an enlarged heart that functions completely normal. I understand your concerns. You will need to get an echocardiogram to determine the function.
