My husband has been having some heart problems. He is scheduled for a heart cath. on Monday Feb. 27th. He is scared for he is obese and thinks he could die during the procedure. He is also on coumadin so he thinks he could bleed to death. Of course, he has to be off of coumadin (a blood thinner) for five days prior to the procedure and after too. He has to have these injections instead. He keeps having these chest pain and he gets cold and sweaty and clammy skin. The cardiologist knows this and that is why the cath. was scheduled. He had another episode last night. I got up and checked his pulse which was very weak. I took his blood pressure and it was normal and the machine took his pulse as well and it was okay. We did not call 911 this time for he did the last two other times and they did EKG’s and they were normal. I told him that is why the doctor is doing the cath. for he may have a blockage somewhere in his heart. His diet is terrible. Anyway, please pray for him to survive the procedure. I hear him on the phone with his dad and mother and he keeps repeating how a friend of his who was also morbidly obese went into open heart surgery from the procedure due to what they found. So he knows this could happen too.
Thanks in advance for your prayers.
