Mitral and aortic valves replaced in an open heart surgery. Having excessive sweating and pins and needles sensation on the left hand. Should be worried?
My wife had an open heart surgery in May 2009. Two valves were replaced i.e. Mitrial and Aortic. Metal valves were placed in. Now, after 3 years, often in hot humid weather she has pins and needles sensation in her left hand with heavy sweating. Sometimes she feels numbness in her left hand and sweats too. Then after 1 or two minutes she is fine. Please advise what is actually happening and whom should we see for medical attention. Thanks a lot.
