Nuclear Stress Test

Recommended Posts

I'm having a nuclear stress test next week in Boston. I had a chemical one two years ago and I almost fainted lying down. This time they're planning to put me on a treadmill. Should I have someone drive me to Boston? I live in RI and usually drive 45 minutes to the "T", and then take that in to Boston. The one problem that I have is climbing the sets of stairs at the "T" stop in Boston. I'm having the test to check me since I have trouble with inclines (dizziness) and to clear me for knee surgery. I can't take Nadolol the day before and the day of the test. Last time I stopped my betablocker cold turkey, I was in the emergency room two days later. Any advice? Suz

That is right, you must trust your intuition.

If you tend to wind up in the ER (I did from a non nuclear stress test)... I would think it better be safe and have a friend along to drive you.
