Abnormal test on Stress Test?how serious???

Posted , 5 users are following.

Recently had a echocardiogram done at Carrilion...


1.Grade 1 Mildly abnormal left ventricular diastolic filling

2. Mild aortic stenosis

3 Ejection fraction estimated at 60 to 65%

Normal sinus rhythum..Poor R wave progression, low voltage

4. Inferolateral hot spots. consider ventricular hypertrophy

Aortic valve appears trileaflet.

5. Mild aortic valve sclerosis

They act like this was nothing to worry about..my research says different..im very scared and worried  at what point does it turn from mild to severe..

    I can't say as I understand that reading,but I can see your concern.

    why do they say "nothing to worry about" but never tell you how you can help yourself.

    Ive had a similar problem with a blood test,when I asked for a copy and showed it to a couple of friends (who are nurses) I was told they haven't given you the true reading.  So I'm off to have words with my GP.

    WHY!!! Do they just worry us. It's beyond me.

      I had a exercise stress test because my cholesterol was 5.2. But my LDL was 3.0 within range. I did have a 24 hr holter monitor test done in the summer. Said my heart was fine just saw some PVC's probably due to my anxiety whereing it.

      Was told all normal nothing to worry about.

      When I had my stress test I went 14 mins and was told that I did well and my recovery was awesome . But then the cardiologist got a report saying my heart was stressed. I had no pain or out of breath except near the end when running up hill . Scared .. now I have yo have a nuclear stress test in a few weeks and a echocardiogram in Jan . Anyone else have these results saying your heart not getting enough blood but feel fine working at the stress test?

      Would love to have some support here if others had to do these tests smile

    Thankyou for your reply..and yes Actually I think the lady that ws supose to go over this with me got in trouble because I read the results online first which scared the life out of me....I was told to eat healthy and watch my cholesterol..That being said  my mother is gone now and she had nothing but heart surgeries and needed a brand new aortic valve but could not undergo the operation to repair..I have very high cholesterol in my genes as well..

      I've recently found out my cholesterol is 7 I've already had one heart attack,so I was put on statins which I'm not happy about because I'm on such a lot of meds.

      Yesturday by accident I went on a cholesterol forum ,a lady on there suggested  Lecithin capsules which you get from a health shop.

      But her story convinced me.  So if you get a chance go on there and take a look.

    Statins not only stop the build up of Cholersterol on your artery walls, They also

    stop the rupture of the Colesterol from causing a blood clot.

    This is very important for anyone with CAD and/or diabetes.  Will give you a longer life and maybe prevent you from having open heart surgery for Bypass.
