thank you jtaylo!!
I very much appreciate your response.
Sounds very similar to what I have, but your dr. approached it pulomonary instead of cardiac,,, I have been wondering if that is the way I should have been handled also. And cystic people??? Oh boy am I. Over the years they have found cysts on my thyroid, liver, ovaries and now this one in my pericardium. That is a very interesting question that you are planning on taking to your doc regarding scar tissue. I will be interested to hear the doctors answer. From what I have heard that scar tissue can really be something to deal with. Did you have a persistant nonproductive cough? Had you suddenly become VERY sensitive to dust of any sort? These are the two symptoms that I can definitely connect to this pericardial cyst. The palpatations and chest pain seem to stem more from an estrogen problem, perimenopause, since If I take a good amount of premarin daily I can get rid of them. I would be interested to know the name of your doc. It would be quite a trip for us, but we are willing to do that should the need arise. We have been seriously considering Mayo clinic. My grandpa and all 5 of his brothers died of lung cancer,,never thought I was at risk, because I never smoked (watching someone die of lung cancer is a very strong deterent for a teenager) now am wondering. I HAVE been a weaver of fabric for many years, a hobby of mine that I have had to give up in the last year because it makes the cough SO bad. Thanks again!
god has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
