Heart Test Results
Wednesday, March 23, 2011
My first ultrasound heart test showed a definite problem with the heart valve leaking. :(
Since there were so many drs listening to my heart everyday when I had mrsa (twice), they believe the damage to the heart valve was due to one of the five antibiotics I took to kill off the first mrsa.
I need a few more tests in the future to see if the damage is still progressing, but if it was caused by the antibiotics there shouldn't be any further damage. My fingers are crossed for good results on the next test :)
Now for the exercising: Do it, but don't overdo. Keep a close eye on the heart activity. Get the heart strong without overtaxing it. I had wanted to start jogging and had a willing partner lined up who is a diehard runner, but for now that will have to wait. Oh well, one step at a time.
They reviewed my weekly diet and it passed with flying colors!! Thank you SparkPeople & Clean Eating!
