Re: Stress test next week
I think we talked on another subject. They really are giving you a workout, aren't they? I'd have anxiety too, with all the big words they've thrown at you. As far as the stress test is concerned, wear a really comfortable pair of shoes. I would imagine that if you can go 15 minutes you should be okay. Generally, they steadily increase the incline, but they monitor your heart all the time and at the end.
Usually, if they are going for the actual walking treadmill, it means they think you're probably all right.
The stress test can also be done by injecting medicine that stresses the heart, and no walking is required. That is typically reserved for the patients that are suspected to have heart disease.
