    I go to surgery at 7:30 Thursday morning.
    Full anesthetic.
    They only allowed it if I had someone beside a taxi to take me home.
    My landlord agreed to take care of me.

    We all will pray (sorry again something relating to religion) for the very best outcome, however, your original post shows you could do it easily with will power

    All the best

    They at first said I would have to provide proof my heart was ok.

    Well, 4 years ago I was sent to the U of Va at Charlottesville & they put me in a big machine that rotated big magnets around me.
    MRI--- ????
    & they rubbed some grease on my chest & took a scan of my heart.
    I could see it beating on a screen.
    That was strange.
    It was the same thing they use to see unborn babies with.

    All scans showed good heart function.

    These new doctors finally decided to rely on the old scans.

    {this makes me think doctors work together to make one take unnecessary tests for more money spent}

    A point in case is my old dentist{over 25 years ago} said he would save a tooth for me.
    He said any other dentist would pull it just so they wouldn't have to do the work necessary to save it.
    He drilled it out to the root & packed it with antiseptic & filled it with silver.
    It needs to be pulled now, but it kept good for over 25 years.
    They said root canal & a crown--- $3000 would fix it with NO promises about further trouble with it...
    Or pulling it...

    Anyway, the new doctors decided to take my word about my heart being in good shape & will proceed with the full anesthetic surgery.

    It cost over $6,000 for the original scans.{Half an hour at most doing them}

    I don't trust doctors as far as I could throw them.
    Seems they are more interested in money than in the well-being of their patients.

    Well, I'll see what happens today.
    Maybe they will screw up & I can sue them for 10 million $$$.

    If I survive...

    Well, 4 years ago I was sent to the U of Va at Charlottesville & they put me in a big machine that rotated big magnets around me.
    MRI--- ????
    CT Scan if it took 5 to 10 minutes or if 30+ minutes then MRI

    & they rubbed some grease on my chest & took a scan of my heart.
    I could see it beating on a screen.
    That was strange.
    It was the same thing they use to see unborn babies with.
    This sounds more like Sonography

    All scans showed good heart function.
    Great

    Seems they are more interested in money than in the well-being of their patients.
    That's universal with few exceptions

    Well, I'll see what happens today.
    You'll come out even stronger

    Maybe they will screw up & I can sue them for 10 million $$$.

    If I survive...
    They won't screw, you'll survive and still able to sue them. Once you get the 10 million $$$ don't forget me

    You've great sense of humor

    Don't generalise(universalise) that to whole Doctor community - we sacrifice our lives soulfully to others for their well being - the whole 24*365 a year.

    Yes, the grease thing for scanning - it would be Echo-cardiography.

    I don't know why doctors didn't do any PAC (pre anesthetic checkup) particularly of heart. In general, if you have been on some cardiac drugs or cardiac ailments are suspected, then investigations are to be done - no matter what previous ones were. It is also done if you're elderly (usually more than 65years).
    If you're not in this category, then they'll assess clinically and follow up thereon.

    David, wish you all the best - keep strong , will be waiting for you here.

    No worries. We have our personal experiences to share, that's one of the reasons we all are here.

    I wanted to inform & make sure the readers of this thread not to take it in any other way. Being a doctor is not a job , but life itself - to be able to heal!

    I know you didn't mean to hurt anyone here or any country. Always enjoy each moment in our lives.

    Cheers!

    His surgery was supposed to be 7:30AM, he may still be pretty out of it. Could be a few days before we hear from him. Trying to let him know we're thinking about him.
