Monday I go for the final Dr. required test before scheduling surgery.
I'm a little nervous about this one but it will be over before I know it.
Anyone else have to do this prior to their surgery??

I did!!! and since i could barely walk more than 50 feet without resting, i had a drug-induced stress test. it was no big deal - REALLY, it wasn't. they simply want to know if your heart will beat weirdly under stress, and how fast it'll go so that they'll have a good idea of how you'll react under the stress of surgery and if they need special precautions.

chin up, darlin!

Yep, I'm an old chick and flew through it with flying colors. Good luck!
