You can do exercise only as you can tolerate as you are the best judge of your own body. its also depend on kind of job you do? if desk job you can resume after 2 months of surgery. make sure you use vitamin E cream on scare and give little massage that will prevent bulge of scare tissue between you skin and sternum. Use bike after 3 months of surgery and ride slowly . you also need to discuss all of these with your own surgeon. Spartan

hi there, im inquiring for my husband whom is suffering from aches ect, he had the snip done around 9 years ago, procedure went well, a few years after the snip my husband was suffering with pain and swelling in the left testical, we followed this up and he was told that he had blew a seel, meaning his testy was being choked by variagus veins, so he had an operation to have his left testy removed. every now and then he has been suffering from a pain in the ball that is no longer there, when he urinates he feels a sensation running down the inside of his left leg, also he says he has a light burning sensation running down the same area, and pain near the scar where they made the incision for the removal of his testie, hubby has had prostate checks and all clear, sitting up causes him discomfort in the said areas..any insight would be much appreciated..

My husband had quadruple bypass 2 years ago. After the surgery, but not because of the surgery, he had blood clots that caused him to return to the emergency room. Since then he has been fine except for a tiny little wet cough that is chronic. Sometimes he has this tiny cough even when he s mid sentence. Could this have anything to do with a clogged artery or blood clot.

My Brother is in Riverside Methodist Hospital, Columbus Ohio. He has a problem with cervical spinal and lumbar stenosis. He had triple bypass surgery at least 20 years ago. He went to the emergency room and was admitted to the hospital. After some tests he a v Fib and was stabilizes with drugs. as the result he was transferred to the ICU. The next day they performed an angiogram and said he had a heart function of 50% and today they were to install a defibralator, but now they decieded against it and say he only has a 20% heart function and nothing can be done. Is this correct and do you have any suggestion for further treatment.

Hello - Just wondering....I am a 41 yr old female, born with an aortic stenosis. I am a healthy person, never ever go to the doctor except back in Jan 2001 I had an aortic root enlargement and aortic valve replacement with a bovine valve. I have felt awesome afterwards. I have an extremely stressful job (office work not physical) just wondering if what feels like depression, tiredness, both arms ache with physical activity. My left thumb has had two occasions last week where it was stuck in a gripped position and could not move it for a minute or two. I know I am stressed as my neck has knots and am using alot of ben gay and advil. My blood pressure is actually perfect so I am assuming that it is NOT my heart. That is what I have come to the conclusion and just wanted to double check as I don t want to go to the doctor. Wouldn t that be a good indicator that I am just fine and it is just stress?

I just took my blood pressure a few minutes ago. It was 95/65, with my heart rate being 90. I take two blood pressure meds. I have lost about 23 lbs. since January, on a low carb diet. Is it possible that the blood pressure meds are too much for me now? I also have mitral valve regurgitation, and see my cardiologist twice a year. I also started doing water aerobics three times a week, since January. I just want to make sure that this isn t too low now. Is this something I should be concerned about or is this okay?
