My dad is going for a Lexiscan on Friday and the internet seems filled almost exclusively with horror stories. .

Last year, my dad went into sudden cardiac arrest during a treadmill stress test. He was revived and had a stent put in. He has been having some breathlessness when climbing stairs or lifting heavy items, so the cardiologist recommended another stress test. The idea of getting on another treadmill after he almost died last time, is scary to him, so the cardiologist recommended a Lexiscan
. He has an appointment on Friday to get the test.
Has anyone here had a Lexiscan? If so, what was your experience like? I'm interested in both good and bad stories. I'm really anxious about him having this test and think it would be helpful to understand what to expect. I'm also interested in hearing from people who have had family members take this test.
