My dad is nearly 62, and apart from having his gallbladder removed due to painful gallstones, he has always been as fit as a trout. Growing up, I think my brothers and I just figured he was big, strong and immortal, that he'll just live forever ::)

Recently he discovered he has atrial fibrillation, which in itself is no big deal, he has started taking asprin (and also blood pressure medication). Within the last week he has had some mild chest pain on the left side, and his doctor suggested he have a stress test to rule out anything sinister, and he put it down most likely to a muscle strain. Dad has the stress test today, and to everyone's surprise it revealed stenosis of one or some of his coronary vessels. He is having an angiogram tomorrow, and worst case scenario is that he has high grade occlusion(s) and will require coronary bypass surgery reasonably soon. We're hopeful, though, that at worst he has a mild narrowing that can be treated with a stent during the angiogram.

So, being the big believer in the power of PS dust that I am, may I please ask if you could all spare some for my daddy?
Thankyou! :wavey:

More dust here.

I must say though, this is the best way to detect that a stent/bypass is needed. Typically only during cardiac arrests are blockages discovered, so I am glad for you that you found out in a much less dangerous way. Very much like my own dad. He's fine now. Best wishes.

Sending you and your dad tons of dust! Glad it was caught before anything bad happened and hopefully a stent will be all that is needed and some meds. Let us know how he makes out...hugs...

Boatloads of dust to your dad, DA. My screen name is all about my dad--he was 64 when he was finally diagnosed with cancer (probably 62, your daddy's age) when he first started experiencing symptoms. Almost 7 years later he is still with us and doing great. I'm glad your dad went to the doctor and is doing something about his health now. Everything will be fine. Take care.

AWW!! Can ya feel the love?! :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

Thankyou everyone, your fantastic dust worked! Dad had his angiogram this morning, and he has absolutely no stenosis of any of his coronary vessels! Yippee!!! I had a chat to the cardiologist who is also a collegue of mine, and he feels that perhaps the stress test showed a false positive. Either way, he is resting at home and returning to work on Monday - fit as a fiddle! Everyone at work was really kind and wishing me well today (I'm a nurse and work between an operating theatre and a cardiac cath lab, sometimes ignorance is bliss, as they say! ::)) so we felt surrounded by love and great vibes all day!
Thanks so, so much again to all of you lovelies, much much appreciated! I couldn't have asked for a better outcome!! :appl: :appl:
