"I really doubt that you will able to build a case. As Firelfly noticed the cardiologist made everything under normal procedure. I shall complement with the technical aspects of your tests."
He made everything under normal procedure but lied about the results of the procedures.
"EKG is a completely interpretative study. It can not stnad alone as a diagnosis test for an appropiate evaluation. It depends completely on the clinical experience of the doctor. The dignosis is done in conjuction with the physical exploration and clinical history. Many graduate doctors have huge problems reading EKG correctly. And many of them commit a bigger mistake, some EKG machines provide an electronic interpretation made by the machine. This is stupid, as i said before EKG is useless without the clinical evaluation (i once saw a 17 year old girl a high performance athlete with a perfect health to whom a EKG machine reported old heart infarction, ventricular hypertrophy and new heart infarction).
What must doctors do is refer the patient to an specialist that has more experience with EKG, of course with a note on what is their fear.
The more EKG experienced specialists are Cardiologists, Internal medicine doctors, and Emergency specialists."
It was the hospitals experienced Cardiologist who reviewed my EKG and said it was enlarged and sent it off to my pediatrician. I read that fatigue is a symptom of enlargement and that is exactly what I was having. Do all left atrial enlargements cause symptoms? Also, I did start suffering from palpitations as I mentioned in one of the "Pertinent Events", which have continued to this day but now are rare. Also I mentioned the unusual episodes of chest pains about 2 months after.
"This questions are of upmost importance, they help evaluate if there really is a cardiac problem."
Yep. I had chest pain not caused by food. I then started having palpitations and severe chest pain completely unrelated to food, as well. Unfortunately, I was lied to about those by the hospital this lying doctor is affiliated with so I can't prove anything. They will just say it was strain from something (sureeeeeeeeeee). But anyway, now I sometimes get left sided chest pain that a 2013 cardiologist wanted evaluated for possible ischemia but I have not followed through with this.
"After performing his questions and making a phisical exploration he noticed that the EKG findings where irrelevant. Even more important, for the evaluation of a murmur the EKG is useless. The phrase the EKG was beutiful is a smooth way to try and make you relax. Of course he saw it. But didn´t found relation to your complaints. BTW the clinical formula to evaluate the size of the left ventricle has a rate of false positives that goes up to 40 per cent. It means 4 in 10 patients diagnosed as left side enlargment by EKG alone will have a completely normal left side of the heart."
First of all, I'm sure this lying sack of @$%$ heard my prolapse and as you may know, that's one of the causes for an enlargement. And guess what else? Around the time of left enlargement on EKG I had total left sided dull pain that, from what I can remember was from waist to armpit and covered some of back and the front of left side of body. I've only had this thing 1 time in my life and it was at that time when I had the EKG. Just because I didn't pass out, have flutters, dizziness or chest pain during activity doesn't mean my VERY unique chest pain at the time of EKG is insignificant. Maybe it was a coincidence that I got enlargement at that time and then later my enlargement disappeared as even the honest cardiologist has echocardiogram and EKG that do not show any enlargement except for a 49MM diastolic pressure and above normal is 52 for my age back then.
"This are normal findings on a young patient with functional murmur. But even if there is no murmur many factors can alter the EKG findings, like some medical drugs, hormone alterations, food (coke, black tea, chocolate, rye), emotional factors (anxiety, stress), hydration state. At the end they recommend an echo follow up. which actually was reported as normal.
If you saw a pediatrician it means you where less than 16 years old. During the teen years the body mas,s muscle mass and longitudinal growth change drastically and greatedly, so the heart rapidly has to adapt to the new physical demands. So quick physiological and hemodinamical changes are completely common."
This is nullified by the fact that I was 19 and turning 20 very soon.
Keep trying buddy.
"Go and ask an experienced lawyer. I really doubt that you will win such case."
You're right, but only because lawyers are big pussies and/or lazy and don't want to waste time with something that won't make them big money. And from what I heard elsewhere, I won't even make any money if I win because my injuries are mental and not physical as I don't have any evidence his lies caused me "increase in damage." So lame.
