Ok, here's my story. I am 39 now, but 7 years ago I had an infected aortic valve which was permanently damaged. The following year I had open heart surgery to replace the valve with an artificial one. Because of the risk of clotting, I have to take Coumadin for the rest of my life which requires monthly monitoring. Otherwise, I am in excellent health. I am 5'9", 165 pounds, exercise regularly. I started PB in the beginning of March 2010. I went to have my monitoring done on Monday, and I mentioned my new diet on PB, and that I eat a lot of eggs. She told my cardiologist, who had her staff call me to tell me to stop with the eggs, or only eat the whites. My suggestion was to test my cholesterol to see if there has been any change. I hope there's not. Anyway, she is not happy with me. Anyone have issues with their doctors yet? What did you do?
No announcement yet.
My cardiologist is mad at me!
