Dom has been feeling extremely lethargic for a few weeks. Dizzy spells and very little energy.
We went to our Dr. C. last week.
He sent us to a Cardiologist for a Nuclear Stress Test on Tuesday.
Dr. C’s office just called to say that Dom had to get back to the Cardiologist. He has a blocked Left Ventricle. We have an appointment for next Tuesday morning.
Meanwhile, we’re having a Carotid Artery Ultrasound tomorrow.
I immediately did some quick research.
ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE Veterans who develop ischemic heart disease and were exposed to Agent Orange or other herbicides during military service do not have to prove a connection between their disease and service to be eligible to receive VA health care and disability compensation. –

So…. Agent Orange quite possibly raised it’s ugly head yet AGAIN.
