Had a procedure done Friday. Not the one I was supposed to have. My cardiologist didn't like the looks of the pictures from the angiogram back in March and decided that before he could do anything, he needed better pictures. If they were okay, he would go ahead and place the stent. They showed something different than his partners picture taking, so the stent still wasn't placed. I will have to do this at least on more time now.
If he had tried to put the stent in on Friday, it would have immediately shut both my kidneys down and that would have been it! I am thankful that he had the foresight to take more pictures and do the angiogram first. The next step will be for them to schedule a CT scan to get precise measurements and then have a stent special made to fit the area without shutting down the kidneys.
Although the stent wasn't put in place, they still had to invade my body with a catheter and go through the groin to take the pictures for the angiogram. It feels like I am sore for no good reason even though I realize it was a good reason. Still, the soreness and pain is not at all pleasant!
That's all for now, until I have further news to share besides, I can't sit here any longer!
