← Return to Nuclear stress test and ascending thoracic aneurysm 4.8 cm

The way it works for me is that my cardiologist orders the test and the radiologist follows those orders. If you have been prescribed a chemical stress test by your cardio and the radiologist doesn't think that is safe, I think you need to go back to your cardiologist to discuss.

I have always understood that AFib is a (very) rapid heartbeat, not missed beats. I think missed beats are not as serious as AFib but this is another discussion to have with your cardio.

And in the meantime, I would follow direction to not exercise or lift even 25 lbs.

This is a learning process for all of us and I always make a list of issues I don't understand or questions I have.

I wish you good luck with all of this. You will feel better once you have more details.
