I called my Dr. this morning (I should've thought to call him last night) and it took him an hour to return my call. Anyway, he said that my symptoms were minor and not to worry. I asked him whether this had anything to do with the pericarditis (water in the sac of my heart) and he said *NO, that is minor! I'm not concerned about that in any way! Besides, I just saw you last week and the water would not fill up that fast.*
So he told me to go to my Primary Dr. but later told me to go to the ER if I feel worse since, with these minor symptoms, the Primary probably would not see me today. Basically, the cardio thinks I have a cold/viral infection and told me to stay home for work for the rest of this week and *relax*.
I have a follow-up appt with the Cardio next Thursday to discuss the results of my heart monitor. However, he told me to come in on Tues if the fever continues (the office is closed today through Monday because of the Republican Convention and the Labor Day Holiday).
Should I be concerned by all this?
