    Im really not foreseeing any trouble. I think the hardest part will be no coffee in the morning! None 1st thing Wed morn either!
    Stress test is 830-1030 Tues and then back again 830-930 Wed morn.
    I am planning on stopping back home to shower and have brkfst/coffee before I head into work.

    back at work again - the stress test wasnt so bad - I can see people getting claustrophobic tho - not something i would have thought about - but that machine comes right up over ya - starts on the right and heads on over to the left as it takes pictures - that part took about 1/2hr
    Took almost an hr to do the treadmill part of the test
    After I walked I had a pkg of Lorna Doone's (not on the diet but at least they are shortbread) and a glass of cranberry juice before they took the xrays

    They say tomorrow have breakfast and I can take my vitamins. Gotta go back for more xrays.

    They say I did good. Cardiologist asked if I always have such low blood pressure! must be all the walking I do

    I'm sure things will go well for you, but here's some PD coming your way anyhow. Hey--can't hurt, can it, especially when you have to forgo morning coffee! Let us know how it goes.

    Are they doing 2 different tests? I have done a stress test before but not on 2 different days. Did one where they shoot the dye and come back a few hours later for x-rays.

    Good luck and WISHing you the best of results. Sending PD your way so that you aren't missing that coffee - guess you don't driink decaf if you will miss it!

    My husband has these stress tests every six months. I'll bet you pass with flying colors.

    Good morning - every morn I sit here w/my coffee & raisin bran and DIS before getting DS to the bus stop.

    They have me coming in today for the treadmill & "pictures" (will put the dye in an IV, etc) -- tomorrow they have me coming back for more x-rays.
