Up Date - Cardiologist Vist

I went to my Cardiologist last Friday and I have never seen a doctor so upset about what another doctor had prescribed for me. Cortisol is what caused all of the symptoms that caused me to go to the hospital. I am Diabetic and my Cardiologist told me that is the worst drug there is for Diabetics. No wonder my blood sugar had came up. My son, Dr. Bret had questioned why I was on that drug and he wondered how the doctor had tested me. Also my Cardiologist said the bad EKG did not show that I had a heart attack. Needless to say, I will not be going back to the doctor who prescribed the Cortisol. I guess the only good thing is that I got all the tests done before seeing the cardiologist instead of having to wait until he set them up. I will have two more tests one being an Ecoho Cardiogram, and the other a sleep study.

Well I am really sick as I ended up with Frank's bug. Sure wish he wouldn't share everything with me. I thought I was going to be lucky and not get it, but wham it hit me like a brick wall Sunday. So I will be out of commission for a few days.


  1. So glad you did not have a heart attack! Some day I will share my story when the PA at the Cardiologist told me I had a heart attack! Turns out I didn't....rest and take it easy...so glad you are OK...with just the flu... :)

  2. Thanks Donna, I think I am finally getting better, it is a bad bug and takes time to get over. You will have to share your story with me. It is amazing what the medical field can put you through and be wrong.


Hi, thanks for dropping by my blog. It is a place for me to let my family and friends know what is happening in the daily lives of Frank and I. I appreciate your comments.
