Just wondering if anyone has been bothered with "benign arrythmias"?? I had a successful mitral and tricuspid repair in August 2016 by Dr David Adams in Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York. Have been doing great until last month when I started with persistent flutters and palpitations on and off. All my cardiac testings are fine and I was told they are benign arrythmias and nothing to worry about. I have no pain but they are just very annoying. Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has or had similar issues. Thank you.
I am 4 months post mitral and tricuspid valve repair. Everything went well and up until last week I felt great. However, last week I started with chest pain and shortness of breath Chest pain only lasted two days but I continue with shortness of breath with and without activity. EKG and chest xray was normal. Scheduled for echo next week. Just wondering if anyone else had this problem start suddenly 4 or more months after surgery?? Thanks for any input..
Heading to New York tomorrow for surgery on Tuesday, August 2nd. Can't believe surgery is finally here. So much to think about, but hopefully, with the expertise of Dr. David Adams and his team along with everyone's prayers and good wishes, things will all work out. My best wishes and prayers to everyone who is waiting for their surgery. It is truly amazing how many people have valve problems. Thank God Doctors are able to fix these problems.
I found out last fall on my yearly echo that I have severe mitral regurgitation and moderate aortic valve regurgitation. It was confirmed with a TEE and cardiac cath. My local cardiologist felt it was time for the surgery while I am a fairly healthy 63 yr old and basically asymptomatic. To make a long story short I was scheduled at the CC in October but evening before surgery their cardiologist decided I should wait on the surgery. I am now symptomatic and recent echo showed I also have severe tricuspid regurgitation. I have an appt. with Dr David Adams in Mt Sinai end of June and feel I would like him to do my surgery. I have read so much about him and feel confident he is the right choice.
