    Heart cath.
    liladieni posted:
    Hello everyone, I know I haven't posted in a while. Just had to share a little good news.

    I had another heart cath today because I've been having chest pain. Nothing new was found, both stents are still open, and the third blockage has collateral circulation to supply my heart muscle.

    So, no changes at the moment, don't need another stent and no surgery needed either. Just medication changes as the pain indicates for now. Sure am glad it's over, even though I had had two heart caths before and knew what to expect, I really was dreading this one.

    I am just all kinds of relieved and happy right now.
