I had my EGD done. The gastrologist stretched my throat because of me strangling on my meds and some foods. that went well except some throat soreness. My doctor also checked out my esophagus and my stomach and took biopsies of some polyps, My doctor gave me some Rx samples to take instead of my protonix but I started gaining weight. About a pound a day until I had gained 15 pounds.

I felt so much better before I gained the weight back. A year ago I had a sudden weight gain and I was diagnosed with diastolic dysfunction.One day I went for my morning walk I went for my morning walk and could only walk about a mile and a half in 20 minutes and it was all I could do to get back home. The temp was only 78 degrees and overcast with what I learned was 94% humidity. That day my legs and abdomen were so tight from my walk that they hurt and it was only 7:45 in the morning.

I have started walking again but not a 5k again. I saw my Internal Medicine doctor and he did some blood test . Only thing of a little concern was my creatine level was up to 2.4. He wants me to be sure to tell my Cardiologist. when I see him. My regular appointment wasn't until April of next year.

I am already on 40mg BID of Lasix a day along with a few other things. I just want to lose the weight. My Internal medicine doctor want me to exercise but not exert my self. My Cardiologist says my Max heart rate should be 120. I use my fitbit to monitor that and my steps. It doesn't take much effort to reach 120+ and maintain that. I takes about 20 or more minutes of slowing down to 70 or 80

    I"m thinking you need to call and get your appointment moved up. It would certainly ease your mind.
