I have afib, so I need cardiac clearance for my surgery. The cardiologist ordered an echo-cardiogram and a stress test. The echo results came back fine. The ECG report lists an "old anterior MI." I've never been diagnosed as having a heart attack. I tried to get in touch with my cardiologist today, but I didn't hear back from him. So, now I'll fret over the long weekend.
My question to everyone is: has anyone had fusion surgery after they've had a heart attack? I don't think I did have a heart attack, but if the test says I did, is my fusion surgery off the table?
