WELL THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING IN ASHLAND SO AFTER FIGHTING WITH THE DOC'S. THEY TRANSFERED HIM TO DULUTH, MN. HERE THE DOC SAID HE THINKS THERE IS A BLOCKAGE ( 80% ) SURE THAT'S WHAT IT IS. HE ALSO SAID THAT THERE IS A CHANCE IF THAT'S IT IT'S ABOUT 90-95% CHANCE THAT IT IS BLOCKED. THEY MAY PUT A STINT IN AND BE OUT OF THE HOSPITAL IN 2-3 DAYS. SO ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT ALL GOOD NEWS ATLEAST WE HAVE THE ANSWERS WE NEED. SO TOMORROW MORNING HE'S GOING TO HAVE AN ANGIGRAM TO SEE. NOT TO SOUND MEAN OR CRUEL BUT I HOPE THIS IS WHAT IT IS. IF NOT THEN THEY SAID WE ARE BACK TO SQUARE ONE AGAIN. update; WELL WE ARE SITTING HERE WAITNG FOR HIM TO GET DONE WITH THE ANGIOGRAM. IT'S BEEN AN HOUR. SO I GUESS THEY FOUND SOMETHING. WELL THAT'S ALL I KNOW FOR NOW. I WILL UPDATE LATER TONIGHT.

They didn't find anything with the angiogram. they done so many test on him.  well we were told it's a pinch nerve in his neck and shoulder area that maybe the problem so the referred us to a specialist. atleast it's not the heart. we are back home and i just slept. i was tired and he is doing okay

My husband had a heart attack 3 years ago and they put in a stint. He had a 90% blockage too. He was in and out in 3 days. He was off of work for 3 weeks and on half days for a week then back to normal. He is in great health now. I know how nerve wracking it can be to not know what is going on so I get the part where you are hoping that they have found the problem. If you need to talk just pm me.

  I know its hard, but be patient with the docs.  They really are doing the best they can.  Sometimes symptoms can be so weird even THEY are going to have trouble.  I can't imagine the fear and frustration you are feeling right now, and I pray that things improve for you two soon!  If you feel that they have left out anything, or you want a second opinion don't hesitate to ask.  It won't hurt or insult them, they'll understand you want the best for your SO.   But I promise, just hold on, and things will get better.  I know patience is SOOO very hard at a time like this, I can't imagine how hard it is.  But you can do it!

I'm so sorry...I kinda know what you are going through...kinda.  My DH was admitted to the hospital last night and the docs can't figure out what's wrong with him.  He had severe stomach pains and after a few tests they'd discovered that he has an enlarged spleen, but can't figure out why.  I feel bad for him, because his pain is getting worse instead of better.  So, we're just waiting for answers...
