Saw my cardiologist yesterday and he's referring me to another guy at the University of Chicago (I live in northern Indiana). While I've been thinking for awhile now that a second opinion is a good idea, it's a little disheartening to know that my cardio doc seems to think he's done all he can for me. I just want them (whoever it turns out to be) to figure out why I keep getting the chest pain and why I keep blocking up. I have an angiogram done on one vessel and 2 months later another one blocks up. I've changed my diet, I quit smoking 2+ years ago, I exercise, I'm faithful with my meds. It's very frustrating to be doing 'all the right things' and still see no changes.
Anyone know anything about the doctors at the Univ. of Chicago? Can I expect this to be like a regular office visit or will it be different? I'm hoping the 2 hour drive will be worth it and we'll get some answers. Maybe fresh eyes looking at my case will see something the local cardio docs are too close to see.
