Most of us are told at one time or another we have mitral valve prolapse and/or premature ventricular contractions. I was about six years ago and forgot about it! (lucky me, right?) Well as I was being prepped a few months back the anesethist sp. appeared to ask questions et al. Then the RN hit the fan because I had not disclosed the MVP. I told her yes but I truly forgotten! The anesthesist promptly ordered an echocardiogram, when never got done due to the ineptitude of the goat-roper hosp. I was temporarily hitched to......after four hours of bizarre treatment I asked if I could please call this procedure. You could see the sigh of relief pass before the radiologists' eyes! CactusLil'
