Just received the results for my nuclear stress test. The results are as follows:
FINDINGS: The rotational raw data demonstrate stable patient position. The stress images demonstrate a small region of mildly reduced activity at the basal to mid inferior wall. The rest images demonstrate reversibility of this finding. Gated images
demonstrate normal left ventricular wall motion and thickening. The left ventricular ejection fraction is normal at 69%.

IMPRESSION: Probably abnormal myocardial perfusion study:
1. Small reversible finding at basal to mid inferior wall suggests a small region of ischemia.
2. Normal left ventricular systolic function.
Cardiologist changed my meds. Took me off Gemfibrozil and starting me on Crestor 20 mg. She wants to do a cath but is concerned about my internal bleeding so the cath has to wait. She did give me a referral to a new cardiologist (EP) to see about putting in the Watchman FLX. Just waiting to get appointments at this time. Two week heart monitor did not show anything un-expected.

Hi @phoenix1647 Sorry to hear that surgery is going to happen now, but at least they are headed in the right direction for your better health. I did move your comment to the discussion that you already started just so everyone who is following this conversation can see your update. How are you feeling overall about having the watchman placed?
