My GP has just called to tell me she’s referring me for an echocardiogram due to signs of venous diversion on a chest X-ray.

Has anyone experienced this? I was a bit taken aback by the call so forgot to ask any questions and Google looks a bit terrifying.

Can I still run? Should I be worried?

Thanks :)

Eek. Nothing constructive to say except fingers crossed that the ECG gives good news.

I just came on here to say that "Venous Diversion" sounds like either a prog rock band or a Profanisaurus entry.

Thanks Dooogs, gave me a giggle :)

Feeling much less alarmed after some time to process. Doc thinks it’ll be a couple of months before they get round to ECG so might as well carry as normal. Clearly nothing to be too alarmed by.

Got something to say?
