great, thank you. I had a heart transplant in May of 15. It all started with a Simple knee operation . Somehow that moved to a Severed Aorta. Well, now I have a new heart. My hands and feet are very light skin. I am Puerto Rican and naturally have tanned skin pretty much year round.

Hi, just having probs with blood pressure, it was low, so the drs took me off Cardizem CD and put me on fludrocortisone, up to 0.3mg daily. Was stable about 6 months, then my BP jumped to 160/90, was in hospital overnight (about 3 monts ago) and it came back down to normal. Fludrocortisone changed down to 0.2mg and BP stabilised. I have been off the florinef for about a week now,as a test with drs ok, and currently (in bed at almost 4am!) my BP is sitting at 159/116 with a heart rate of 75. I am 18 1/2 years post heart transplant, current ag is 32.

My son is 36 years old. He has dilated cardiomyopathy with a heart efficiency rate of 15 to 20%. He has sleep apnea and sleeps with a CPAP mask. He has had a pacemaker/defibrillator implanted. He is 6'5" and weighs about 360. He knows he needs to lose weight, but even with a healthy diet of fish, veggies and no salt, he is still heavy. He rides a recumbent bicycle about 3 miles a day. He is on diuretics and coreg. What would you suggest as the best course of treatment from here? I am not sure he would survive a heart transplant.
