I had pnuemonia a few weeks ago, and my breathing hasn't been right since, so my doctor wanted to make sure my problems were not related to my heart, so he sent me in for a type of a stress test. It was to take 4 hours and cost $2400 (I am uninsured) but I figured it was worth it, I mean, if they can prevent my first heart attack that would be worth $2400 right?
Well, they didn't like the results of the test and immediately admitted me to the hospital and performed a procedure where they went into a vein in my leg and up and into my heart and had a look around. The good news is the arteries are large, not clogged, and my heart is strong. The bad news is they still don't know why I got a bad result on my stress test, so they kept me for a couple of days doing many tests on me including a 2.5 hour long MRI.
Well, I should get the rest of the results this week as I will be meeting with a specialist. But now I have to recover from the hospital stay!
Anyway, there goes 20 grand!
I'M SO SMART IT'S SCARY!
