No news is just no news sometimes.

Dang it.  I went today for the CTA scan.  I got prepped and IV'ed and dosed with Lopressor.  They took me back when my heart rate was 79.  Heart rate must be 60 or below to make the 3D images viewable.  After three more IV doses of Lopressor, my heart rate sat stubbornly at 75.

My betas refused to be blocked.

I could not have the test.  I have to call the cardiologist in the  morning to find out what the next step will be.  I am seriously disappointed.  I figured I would know the mysteries of my chest pain with in days because of this awesome test.

No such luck.

I will keep you posted.
