The results of my echocardiogram arrived in the mail today. The conclusion: “The study was technically good”.
“The left ventricle was normal in size”.
Okay. So far so good.
“The aortic valve was trileaflet and normal with no regurgitation”.
To the best of my knowledge, this also seems okay.
“The mitral valve leaflets were normal with mild regurgitation”.
Regurgitation is a condition in which doesn’t close tightly, allowing blood to flow backwards into my heart. But so long as it’s not severe…
“There was mild pulmonary regurgitation. There was trace tricuspid regurgitation”.
Overall, a might too much regurgitation for my liking. The mild pulmonary kind is, apparently, quite common. As is the tricuspid regurgitation.
“There was no wall motion abnormalities at rest. At peak Persantine dose, there was normal augmentation and contractility of all segments. Normal decrease in cavity size with stress.” and “Normal stress test. Normal stress echo images.”
I got a second opinion from Dr. Google and it all checks out.
The report concludes by suggesting: “Continued regular exercise and healthy eating routine.”
Speaking of which…
Hokkaido uni and ikura rice bowl (Daily Seafood)
Horchata, birria en su caldo, tacos de lengua, choco-coco flan impossible (Fonda Balam).
Hot sauces compliments of Dr. Blackjack.
Matcha Lava Bites, also compliments of Dr. Blackjack. I was going to suggest this was false advertising but my research shows that even lava that has cooled and stopped flowing is still referred to as lava…so these cookies get a pass.
