I would like to put out a .....well Pleading request here. I think the majority of people may not even think this is a problem but I am
welll bluntly put.... Tortured by noise that comes from. Car Lock Honking. The whole world has been taught by the auto industry these days that to lock your car you:
Click once - lock and arm
Click twice H O NNN KKKKKK confirm
I live on a street where there is one hour parking. I have been inundated with click Honk click Honk click Honk click Honk!!!!!
I have numerous heart conditions valve repair cardiomyopathy bradycardia and afib arrythmias. I was in heart failure because of the arrythmias for a year and an ablation more ir less fixed it But the startling noise from Car Lock Honking isa hazzard to me and other cardiac patients. So .... I Beg and Plead that the awareness of this is raised and that people STOP Honking when they lock their cars. As I said it literally is Torture and most people have no idea what it does to some cardiac patients.
Thank you so much.
I have another subject. Bradycardia.
I had mitral repair surgery four years ago with a maze procedure for A fib. Due to what I believe was extreme stress the maze didnt take and I was often in tachycardia for about a year. I had to have another ablation. My pulse often now is in a resting state of 50-55 but at night if I go out I found this week it drops into the mid 40s and I dont feel well spacey weakish. I just learned this actually last night because I bought an oximeter.
Its 5 am. Ill have to tell my doc but Im not thinking theres anything much she can do other than that I rest at night and dont go out anymore or get a pace maker which scares me. Not sure I trust them. Have other people dealt with this? What do you do? Do I trust the oximeters readings? Im now getting addicted to checking my pulse frequently which can get obsessive. Anyone any thoughts? I live alone and its scary.
I'm curious if when a doctor reads an echocardiogram if there is any degree of subjectivity in the "results". I have had mitral valve repair surgery and last year one doctor stated the post surgeryregurgitation was mild to moderate. A year later a different doctor said it was only mild. How is this possible?
I joined this site a few years ago and havent posted since then. I have struggled to navigate this site. Not sure I will be able to find responses. If anyone also could tell me that I'd appreciate it.
I'm not exactly sure if this is the right place to post a question. but I had mitral valve repair surgery two and a half years ago. I have been told that my valve is beginning to leak again. Is there anyone here who has dealt with mitral valve re repair? I also don't know where to go to pick up the thread of this post?
