    Huh - I would have thought you'd had sufficient cardiac clearance when they were trying to figure out where your chest pain was coming from!

    Better safe than sorry - maybe they didn't look for cardiac artery blockages before (can't imagine that's not true, but trying to look on the bright side).

    they did look for blockages last time, which was only a few weeks ago. I have uncharitable thoughts I won't commit to writing.

    I wish my ever growing constellation of PhDs took me seriously.

    Try real hard to NOT drop dead just to prove you were right.

    I've lost count! and after my abdominal wall reconstruction, I have a 13 inch long incision from bottom of sternum down. I won't be winning any bikini contests.

    thanks everyone. Cardiac clearance issued. I had an interesting conversation with my cardiologist which I can relate should I meet any of you face to face. Check in is 0500, surgery at 0815

    You're probably in surgery right now. Thinking of you and hoping all is going well.
