Well, this has to be my worst nightmare! I just got my Echo results last Wednesday, and now have to wait for another type of Echo (bubble test) to see if I also have an Atrial Septal Defect (hole in the heart). These pretty much go hand in hand.
I was told that the IASA is a very rare defect - trust me!
I had to have my CPN out for a home visit yesterday, as my anxiety has now gone inter stella. The only thing I can do is PRN diazepam to get some relief. My psych. has said to take 2mg as and when needed, or I can increase to 5mg occasionally if things get really tough.
This is truly pants, and not what I was expecting.......The 'cure' for the ASD is open heart surgery.
If anyone's listening 'upstairs' - can you please just cut me some slack?!? Cheers.......😒
