Doctor Visits,  Health,  Heart

Good visit with cardiologist

I had an appointment with my cardiologist, Dr. Aprui, on Friday.  Overall, the appointment went well.  Dr. Apuri was really happy with how things are going, and was glad to hear that I wanted to get into an exercise program at a local health and fitness center.  I informed the doctor that the center had a monitored program that I could join, if he would give me a referral and clear me to join.  The referral was made while I was in the office, and I should hear from the health and fitness center early next week.  I can’t wait to get things going.

One new thing that the doctor wants to have checked is whether or not I have sleep apnea.   We have suspected it for a while now, but it has never been checked or diagnosed.  Because insufficient rest can cause additional problems for the heart, and the fact that I don’t always wake up feeling well rested, etc… Dr. Apuri decided that I should have a sleep study done, and has referred me to a specialist, who will administer the study.  I have an initial consultation with the new doctor on Friday, June 19th.  Wish me luck.

All for now.  Rock on!
