Right Heart Catheterization
My RHC has been scheduled for this coming Monday. I'm not afraid of the Cath anymore. This will be my fourth one, and they get easier each time.
What I am worried about, afraid of, is that they will say that everything is fine, and my PH is not advancing. Let me back up for a second.
Of course I do not want my PH to be advancing. no way. But what else can this be?
My doc told me that everything is worse when you are depressed. No really? I didn't know that.
But they are testing me and soon, I hope, I'll get the referral to the rheumatologist.
The above pic is how they do the RHCs but mine will go in through the neck, I hope. that's how I've always had it done.
