Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Good day.
I guess I answered your question already.
We need little bit more information. Do you have an enlarged thyroid gland? Did you use Amiodarone anytime in the past?

We need to identify the cause of thyrotoxicosis .Because , some type of thyrotoxicosis do not require Carbimazole. You may need a thyroid nuclear scan +/- TSH receptor antibody test. This will give a clue about the exact reason of thyrotoxicosis. Again I feel the dose of Carbimazole is inadequate to control the situation.

It takes up to 3 to 4 weeks for hormone control Nd after that you may feel better. Did you meet an endocrinologist? May I request you to attach the full reports of your blood tests if available?

Is AV Node Ablation a good treatment for my 81 yr old mother (she's a young 81!) with shortness of breath (worsening over the past 90 days)? She had a heat attack with 5-way bypass 11 yrs ago and already has an ICD (defib and packmaker) implanted. Has been very independent up until last 90 days. Now very low energy and worsening shortness of breath. Her heart rate is good, blood pressure good and oxygen content in blood all good. Tried multaq and amiodarone briefly but sides effects too strong for her. She's still with coreg. Just wondering.....? Thanks.

My 76 y/o husband is post-op day 8 double bypass surgery (at home now). He continues to wheeze, especially at night when it keeps him awake and he has to sleep in a recliner chair. Is this typical for OH surgery recovery? He has no visible signs of fluid retention--no swelling, etc. Meds. are lisinopril, amiodarone, zocor, toprol, aspirin. Thank you.
