welcome to healthcaremagic
we can only feel sorry for you at this stage
people read this postings and it can be clearly said that medicines prescribed by doctor after heart attack and angioplasty should be continued life long and be under regular check up to avoid serious complications
along with drugs healthy diets and healthy habits regular exercises are complimentary

Okay..I eat quite alot of unhealthy food - like food high in sugar, fat and salt (pizza, fried chicken, etc), and I get little or no exercise, plus I drink Coca-Cola like everyday. I am not overweight because the medicine I take for ADHD (concerta) reduces my appetite. Oh, and I m 17. Am I putting myself at risk of heart disease? There s no family history of heart problems.

Hi Respected doctor, My sister in law is 62 years and general medical specialist referred her to cardiologist for stress thalliumtest/debulleaine plus minusCA-RP. She is diabetic for the last 22 years. We consulted the cardiologist who after seeing the history and on going treatment first conducted TMT and then advised and carried out angiography, Angiography report is as under HTN, DMII, CA-DOE, TMT moderately positive(21/03/11) and CAG-Triple VesselDisease(22,03.11) Past History k/c/o DMII 22 yrs on reglar Medicine , HTN since 20 yrs on regular medicine No H.o RHD/BA.TB/ other chronicillness angio graphy report as follows Lmca normal LAD MID AND DISTA lad-SEVERE CALCIFICATION,LONG TUBULAR 70 PERCENT Stenosis Ds normal LCX Co Dominent Vessel OMs-OMI-Diffused Diseased RCA Dominent Vessel- Mid RCA 75 percent stenosis PLV/PDA-Normal LV ANGIO NOT DONE FINAL DIAGNOSES CAD, Triple Vessel Disease DMII,TMT POSITIVE (MODERATELY) RECOMMENDATION Stress Thallium for Inducible Ischemia. Now we are advised to go in for Thallium Test. Kindly advise whether Thallium test only as recommended by medical specialist should have been carried out before Angiography or the cardiologist has used his discretion as we are laymen and did not know about thallium test . If thallium test was not available in cardiologists clinic/hospital why he did not refer us to another hospital where Nuclear Science test facility for Thallium test was available. ALso we shall be grateful for the correct advice at this stage to safeguard the interest of the patient ,.REGARDS

I am a single mom w/2 kids and unemployed. Can you help me?

I have been having some type of attacks that we stiff haven't got to the bottom of, I have been diagnosed with ulcer because the zantac helped me lol, then a couple of days later I was taken to the er with the same type of pain which I was diagnosed with biliary colic even though the ultrasound and xray didn't show anything, Then I was diagnosed the third at the er with having a panic attack and that I know wasn't it because I have had panic attacks since I've been around 14 yrs. old. Then I was diagnosed by my family dr. for constipation. lol. These attacks sometimes can be brutal. The pain starts in my back between my shoulder blades, and sometimes it only hurts on the left side and sometimes radiates to right to left but the pain is horrific and painful. These attacks usually cause me to sweat, I feel like I'm having a heart attack because of the pain in my chest, it causes me to burp a lot trying to help stop the pain, I shake because I think its where I'm hurting so bad, and sometimes get the chills, they usually only last about an hour the longest one I had lasted 3 hours. I recently just had another mild attack which wasn't real bad, but every since then I have like stomach acid that feels like it continually flows, I am on Prilosec 20 mg of the morning and zantac 150 mg. at night and have been since this started about 3 months ago. If the dr. presses on the right side of my stomach it hurts, it's like a burning type of tenderness pain that hurts really bad. They have done a hida scan and in the first hour they gave me radio active stuff for my gall bladder to appear but within that hour it did not show, so I had to wait another 30 minutes and finally it showed. Then the second part of the hida scan they gave me ensure to drink to watch how it functions, My family dr. said it was normal. I'm at my whitts end. I don't know what's wrong with me. My belly stays bloated out most of the time, I'm ashamed of when the pain hits because I don't want my kids to see me like this. I'm worried it's my colon since my dad had colon cancer and I have had blood in my stool real heavy for 3 days, went to my family doctor and they took a sample and tested it and said that was normal and since it was bright red it's really nothing to worry about. I just want to find out whats wrong with me. These drs. I think are starting think I'm some type of hypercondriac lol.. any advise would be helpful. Also sometimes that can set these attacks off is like eating something spicy, The other day I drank orange juice and ate a barbeque tv dinner and then had that attack, sometimes if me and my husband get into an argument sometimes that sets it off, or if I have a bowel movement it sometimes sets it off and the last round of antibiotics caused me to hurt. So I don't know what to do.
