Anyway, back to my hole....
yeah heart shit is a PITA
hope yours is nothing serious
when I got hit on the Bay Bridge they did a CT of my chest, saw something funny. then I got transferred to another hospital (Kaiser) and they didn't really read the paperwork... months later, when going through paperwork for my lawyer, I noticed it.
took the paperwork to Kaiser, they thought I needed open heart surgery
after a bunch more scans they "just" did a cardiac cath to look instead (one of the more invasive forms of looking) and decided they didn't need to do anything
my left coronary artery branches off the right side of my aorta and then goes between the aorta and left pulmonary artery, so they were worried it'd get pinched off... but it's round rather than slit shaped so they decided it won't be a problem
