Thanks, Lynnsyn

I had a horrible case of chicken pox when I was five.

I do need to get that shot.

I had it last November.

If you are lucky you will have a doctor who can do it through your arm rather than your leg.

That way you are only immobilized for six hours instead of 24 afterward.

I didn't feel a thing, except where they insert the catheter and that just feels like getting an IV put in.

If there is blockage in your arteries, the cardiologist will determine whether to put in a stent or to refer you to heart bypass surgery - if there is a great deal of blockage.

If they put in a stent, you will have to take a medication to make your blood more slippery for the rest of your life so it doesn't catch on the stent and form a clot.

Luckily my results were very good so I didn't have to do anything further.

Best of luck to you.
