      Then, by all means have your doctor look at it. If it's nothing, then he can tell you that.

    Oh No (Have Major Heart Issue): I had a heart attack just before the Kidney Cancer Surgery,It was not caught until after the surgery when the nurses seen the rapid heart beat (120 plus) on the 4 hour vital checks post op.They did a EKG and it indicated a MI they ran tests and recommended I see a cardiologist when i get out,I did and they did a nuke stress test and a echo...both came back abnormal confirming a MI (heart attack).The doctor told me,the right side of my heart did not get any contrast,thus is not getting blood..I am scared.The doctor said,if it does not need a stent,then she will have to figure out why that part of the heart is not getting blood.I did some research and what I have come up with is there is a valve called the tricuspid valve thats on that side of the heart..it could be that one..will know more tommorrow
