Well here I am...flat on my back again! Turns out that when I had the heart cath that I acquired a "pseudo aneurism"...or a small pocket of blood within the artery wall. Had that repaired today and should be home tomorrow.

Gee. Maybe you could just meet some of the nurses for coffee. There has got to be a better way to see them than the process you have been using.

Went to see Dr. last week and he thought he could feel blood under the skin of my groin and ordered an ultrasound last Mon....yeah really tired of it.

Coffee would be great. ;)

TGIF!! And TGIAH!! (thank GOD I am home) ;)

Here's a good definition of a pseudoaneurysm > http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/cardiac-catheterization/expert-answers/pseudoaneurysm/faq-20058420

Life is good! I seem to be doing really well, with NO pain whatsoever and I'm just really happy to be home. ;) My apologies for the short notes, BUT, it''s really hard to do anything while lying flat on your back and not being able to move your leg or lift your head. :yup: After the heart cath a couple weeks ago, I had to lay without moving my right leg or lifting my head for 6-7 hrs....this trip was about the same and it wasn't nearly as invasive. They did ultrasound so that the Dr. could "see" it and all the while he was giving me a lidocaine local and then taking a looong needle and injecting this "balloon" with a clotting agent. The aneurysm didn't want to cooperate very well, but we were successful, it finally clotted off and all is well, then came the lying flat and still for hours on end. :rolleyes:

Unfortunately for me, I had not planned on staying the night as no one warned me that it might be a possibility, but I guess I "should have known". Had some great nurses again and almost lost my temper with one and walked out, but thought better of it and stayed. Of course they came at 7am this morning to do another ultrasound so that they could verify that the aneurysm was clotted off and all was fine, then I sat in "limbo" until 2:30pm before they could give me the good news. Patience is NOT a virtue of mine...:rolleyes: but we overcame.

 

Yes "Y" I'm getting really tired of hospitals and Dr.s and even nurses, and I pray that this will be my last venture there for some time...but if necessary, I'll not hesitate to go back.

 

@ Tomk_, I'd much rather meet some of those nurses for coffee or dinner, but they are all excellent nurses, very caring and thorough at their jobs. A young lady down in the Radiology dept. yesterday was pointing out to the Dr. on the ultrasound screen just where the aneurysm "necked" down (of course he could see it anyway) but I was very impressed with her knowledge of the situation and exactly what needed to be done.

 

Thanks all for your thoughts and prayers, my family and I greatly appreciate it!

Just wanted to say that I saw the Cardiologist a couple weeks ago and got a "clean" bill of health. New problem tho'....I'm pretty sure that I have another blood clot in my left leg. I'm having some tingling and numbness in the leg and that's not a good indication. Tomorrow morning will tell...

 

"I'll be baack"!

Here I am, BUT, I have a definite blockage in the artery of my left leg...orders to stop all "rat poison" tonite and stay off till Monday, get my INR (blood thickness) checked on Monday and call Dr. with results to discuss procedure or surgery... ;(

Oh, and supposed to sit on my backside and try NOT to walk at all.....

That sucks... but I suggest you try to comply with Dr's orders. I realize that doesn't come automatic with you... but we'd rather you tell us about how the surgery went than hear you've had a heart attack or stroke.

I totally agree with this ...

You might need a little battery powered chair with special front 'turn-caster' wheels friends.gif
