Any one have a weird echo, I went to have my echo today and the technician asked why I was having one, I said I use to have pericardial effusion, but I recently developed arrhythmia, having PVC. During the echo he asks me if they ever discussed how large the effusion was, I said the doctors dismissed it and said everyone has fluid around there heart and they did a wait and watch approach why do you ask? The technician then truned the screen toward me and said I still had a pericardial effusion, I told him at one point they sent me to a cardiac thoracic surgent to get the fluid removed and he felt at the time it was not needed. He then asked if I had prior echo's at that facility, yes I did, he then excused himself to look at the prior echo's. He came back and said that the effusion looked smaller, but when I laid on my back to get a different view of my heart he said that the effusion was unchanged. But it showed it was not compressing the heart and hopefully my body just adapted. He ended by doing my doctor will have results today or tomorrow. Should i be worried? I wonder if that what is causing my arrythmias?? And i understand you have a small amount of fluid naturally around the heart. I wonder if the doctor will compare all my echo's??? What does this mean?? Any one have this experince??
