I am freaking out.
In lat October I went to emergency with chest pains - which turned out to be unrelated. But during their work up on me they found a very strong heart murmur. This lead to an ultra sound appointment early Nov which found my ascending aorta was at 5.0 to 5.5 cm along with a leaky aortic valve.
I had one meeting with my cardiologist in min Nov. at that appointment he told me I would need an ascending aorta replacement and possible a valve replacement. He schedules a detailed CT Scan for Jan 17th and I was to meet him to discuss the results right after the Scan.
On Dec 3rd I was rushed to the hospital with sever chest pains. I had an emergecy CT Scan to rule out a rupture. I was sent home and told the chest pain was not cardiovascular related it was skeletal muscular.
My detailed CT Scan has been moved forward to Dec 13th because the cardiologist feels my case is urgent.
I will not be seeing my cardiologist right after the scan now (scheduling)
I am freaking out because I really do not know what is going on. I only had one real talk with the cardiologist and to be honest once he said I needed heart surfy I was kind of in a fog.
Since then I have only had phone calls and mail from his assistant.
