My biggest wish would be is to know what is going on. I am so frustrated I cannot breathe. I'm the one with the valve repair that didn't workout well, and my right armpit still smells. That is of little concern now, to me at least because I have to say I am cooked. My Card. Dr. talks in circles. I like him, I think. Past Valve guy was so belittling I am too embarrassed to say. I am now with a bunch of big guys at a Heart Transplant Ctr, and Heart Failure Program which I at first felt good about. I thought finally someone is going to tell me what is going on. Am I not bad, am I bad, can I go to work, will I ever go to work, we have one income, can you let me know when you find something out. I just want to know, that's all. When someone takes 16 viles of blood they should be able to tell you something. Do Doctors recognize that not only is money a factor, but quite often the emotional toll over time just kills any relationship you can have Dr's. I am tired. I'm posting because I am too tired to erase. Besides I'm off to the little country market for a pack of smokes. Haven't had one since July 23rd.View Thread
You're going to be OK. I had a valve surgery and my chest is still numb. My surgery was August 4th. Sometimes I feel the Doctors don't necessarily know how important it is to know test results, etc. For instance I had a chest xray to find out what was gumming up my lungs. I finally went to my primary, she got the info. Had Pneumonia. That's not to say I don't dig my cardiologist. Take deep breathes, do you have xanex? I'm a firm believer of meds. Be well, cause you're gonna be.View Thread
5 weeks ago I had what was to be a heart valve replacement surgery, ended up as a repair therapy. Surgeon used the computer/robot method and ever since my right armpit smells really awful. I've tried lots of stuff, deodorants, powder, body washes. Any ideas? It's only the right side where the big tube went in. I'm a woman if that matters. Thanks for your time.View Thread
These are the drugs I am currently on... Coreg 3.125 2xs, Ramipril 2.5 1x, Asprin 325 1x, Vitamin C 500, Venlofaxine 150 1x, Ferrous Gluconate 324 1x, Flovent 2 puffs 2xs, Folic Acid 11mg 1x, Multivitamin 1x, Xanax as needed, same with Trazodone for sleeping.
I finally looked at the effects of Coreg, and Ramipril. I like to live with a script prior to judging. I have found that I am uber tired, I wonder if losing your hair is part of the game, smelly arm pit, etc.
I find myself in great mourning, It's hard, I had to quit smoking, eating salt, I'm Hypo Manic, I hurt, Uugggghhhhh. I hate this. Thanks so much. Had to do a little ranting. PeacesView Thread
