Hi. S/P aortic valve replacement in 2010, now with heart
Hi. S/P aortic valve replacement in 2010, now with heart failure. For past week have had strong fatigue, increasing palpitations; secondary total neck pain. Do you have a clue if this is anything to be concerned about? I'm medically sophisticated.

Hi - my dad is 89 and has had 9 angioplasties and 3 stents. He was being considered for an aortic value replacement with non-invasive procedure but the doctor said at 50 percent heart function he was not bad enough and was going to see if his heart function changed in the next 6 mo. That doesn t sound right to me. 50 percent seems low. Is this another way of saying its a risk / reward trade off situation?
In March 2010, my husband had an aortic valve replacement. His heart had been badly damaged and the doctor told him that his heart would be the best it would get in 1 year. It has been a year and the doctor said his heart is funtioning at 50%. What does this mean and what precautions does he need to take if any? He is 59 yrs old, 5 10 , probably 250-265 lbs. He did not have any blocked arteries. He began using a c-pap for sleep apnea about 3 months ago and his energy has increased. Heat bothers him and he runs out of energy quite fast.
