hi Everybody, just wanted to get comment from everybody who had full stereotomy; i had my aortic valve replaces almost 1 year ago with OnX; i am experiencing pain/discomfort along my sternum and in my back; i don't think its because of my heart(but don't know for sure), my echo at 6 month was good and i had a my C-Reactive Protein was in good range about month ago; I was wondering if anyone 1 year after surgery has been having discomfort in their chess and I also suspect it could be GERD/ esophagus related since pain feels more like a burn than; anybody experiences would be appreciated.
Hi everyone, can everyone share their experiences with chess or back pain/ discomfort at about 4 months post-op after full sterectomy, i have a mechenical valve and aortic root repair, i was supposed to get Echo done but got canceled because of coronavirus and dont know when they will start doing appointments again and would like to avoid going yo ER at all costs. Anybody experience and/or complications they have experienced, it would be very much appreciated.
Hi everyone, wanted to repost yhis as did not get much response on last one and have an update to my issue, i am 3 months post op with aortic On-X valve and repaired anurism. i keep on having PVC and PAC thru oout the day Dr claims its not that often, but today during rehab my heart rate went very high to 160 and i was having alot of PVC/PAC during it wich landed me in ER for 6 hours. Can everyone share their i experience with PAC/PVC after OHS for how long after surgery they keep on having these issues? Anybidies input would be much appreciated.
Just wanted to get input from everyone on their experiences with PAC and PVC after OHS. I am almost 3 months post op from Aortic valve replacement and root repair have an On-x valve. I am expericing PVC and PAC basically all thruout the day and every day, my Cardiologist says they r not dangerous, but it us not a very comforting feeling to experience them both physically and mentally. If someone could share their experiences and how long after surgery they lasted for someone. Thank you in advance
Hi wanted to get everyone opinion on afib/ irregular heart beats, I am 6 weeks post-op from AVR and root repair, i have mechanical OnX valve. MY irregular heart beats i feel like are getting worse, and not better like it should. Past couple of days I contantly have afib/irregular heart beats. I both feel it and my blood pressure monitor picks it up all the time, where couple of weeks ago i would just get couple of times a day. I know the worst part of it is getting a blood clot and i am on blood thiners so the risk is low, but still feels very uncomfortable. Did anyone else start having worse afib/irregular heart beats as the time whet by and if yes how long did it take for them to go away? Appreciate any input from anyone.
Hi everyone, just trying to get some feed to issues I am expericing with my BP and palpitations/arythmia. Few times week my BP keeps jumping last nignt it went to about 190-200/90-100 pulse was ok like 80-85 and it seems to coinside wth me experiencing palpitations, i cant tell whats causing what if it having palpitations it causing spikes in BP or high BP is causing palpitations. I took 0.5 of zanax and BP settled down to normal in about half an hour, but it was still scary to have such high blood pressure. I am about 6 weeks post-op have OnX aortic valve and was wondering if anyone else experienced this issues
Hi everyone, i am about 1 months post op from OHS, i still feel like some bones in my chess are shifting if i move my arms certain way, especially toward bottom of the sternum. Has anyone else had this experience and if yes how did it take to go away. It does not really hurt the discomfor is similar to knee cracking all the time but in the chess and feels very uncomfortable
