If you haven’t gotten a reply, get another doctor. That is too long to wait

I went through it. It costs a little over$26,000. They do a blood test. They don’t count your polls but want to know what you take, just like going to a doctor. You’ll get a bunch of booklets and do occupational therapy which is pretty useless and physical therapy which I found out made me do exercises which were harmful for me to do. It did help while I was there but once I left and went back home, I didn’t have all of the weights and ability to exercise, nor their type of support so I feel that it was a waste of time and would suggest not going. It is not a successful program as they claim as I have talked to other people who were in the program with me.
You definitely need to either go back to the cardiologist, find another cardiologist or go to the ER. The doctor should have done an EKG, should have scheduled a stress test and Holter monitor. Your cocaine use I’m sure has helped to create your problem. You don’t say your age but heart issues do not discriminate. Getting put on beta blocker with no testing or follow up is very irresponsible of that cardiologist. Please seek out medical help before its too late.
I have taken flecainide for a while now and have found it to work well. I also take Imdur and Cardizam. Going for a stress test next week and getting a Holter monitor for a couple of days due to my heart rate being weird suddenly.
I’m going next week. Mine will be bilateral as they have found through research that unilateral isn’t as good. By the way, unilateral sides are based on whether you you are right or left handed. Memory loss is based on the individual not the specific course of this procedure. I’m looking forward to it.
Nothing in medicine is 100%. You need to be more open minded and more informed before making such severe comments. For many, especially those that can’t take antidepressants because they can’t be tolerated, this is a very good alternative, other than suicide
