Question Nuclear stress test

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!
