Hi,My name is Pat & i went to my Dr this past Monday. I had Bronchitus, & I mention to her that a friend of mines mother, had recently had a Carotid endarterectomy. And i ask her to listen to my arteries in my neck. She did !!! And told me that she heard a swishing sound on both sides. I am set up for a Bilateral Carotid Doppler This monday. I have never been checked for anything like this. I am 55,Type 2 diabetic,High blood pressure for many years, but is controlled now with medication.I am about 30 lbs overweight,have diabetic neuropathy in my feet & legs. I also belive that in the past 3 yrs that i have had several TIAs. If anyone could give me some info ,i surely would appreciate it. This has got me very scared !!!!! ThankYou, Pat
