Treadmill stress test
My husband has appt tomorrow morning for a stress test. He got his PM in February and does ok in normal circumstances, but is still out of breath when he climbs stairs or goes up any kind of elevation. Last week the cardiologist suggested the stress test which we both were excited about. It would seem that they would see just what is going on in real time. Well, to make a long story short, he fell last Monday at work. Did come home with a swollen lip and two bruised knees, but that was all. However, we both have noticed that he has not had shortness of breath since the fall. I know this sounds crazy, but is there any way the fall could have changed the situation. I am hoping that after six months maybe he isn't thinking about the pacemaker as much and life is becoming more normal. This has only been going on for one week, but I sure don't want anyone to change any settings if we are finally making progress. Sorry for being so long winded, but any comments will be appreciated.
