Just a bit puzzled as I have received a hospital appointment to have a stress echocardiogram in a few days time. I wasn't expecting it and am now wondering why it has been requested and what it may show? I am now almost 5 months post P/E and on warfarin for life. At my 3 month check up I did mention some slight chest discomfort at times which previous doctors had put down to pleurisy or scar tissue but the consultant said it could not be pleurisy or I would be in more pain and scar tissue was unlikely at this stage. He could not suggest a reason for this discomfort but did not appear very concerned about it. I am just surprised to get this appointment out of the bue and wondered if anyone else had been referred for one and what the outcome was?
