Dear fellow a fibers" across the pond". I'm writing from the US and would like to know of any experiences you might have had with a chemical stress test. I am 74 and was diagnosed with afib 4 years ago. At that time I did have an angiogram with good results. My basic drugs are Flecainide, Elaquis, Metoprolol and Valsartan; and my afib is under very good control. I do have severe osteoarthritis and am a candidate for knee replacements. Now, my cardiologist thinks a chemical stress test is a good test to have done to get a bench mark and prepare for any surgery. I have never personally known anybody who had a chemical stress test and would very much like to read of others experiences. As always, many thanks to this site and all who share the ups and downs of afib.
