My fathers had a heart attack in july and open heart sugary aug 1 13. He had a pace maker put in a week later. He started getting sorry of breath and really tired about 3 weeks ago. They said his heart function is at 20%. They said they ate going to do a angeogram(not sure if that s right) and that if it shows his gaffs are clogged and they can t fix the original blockages then there is nothing they can do. They said they would upgrade his pace make and try upping his meds. Is there anything else they could try to help his heart. I should also add that he is a diabetic and his had kidney failure for about 3 years. He has also had a leg amputated do to an infection. Please help with any advice. Our a idea how long he could live at 20%.
My 5mo old has a heart murmur. I did and so did my father as well. EKG came back normal. Chest X-Rays had one inconclusive and one heart could possibly be enlarged We live overseas. They have given us the option to take him to a larger hospital for an echo but they will sedate him. His pedi says his murmur sounded better this last time and we can wait for his 6mo and see how that goes if we so choose. He is thriving, no blueing, and very happy and active. Any advice?
My husband have a server heart attack and two light ones. The main Artery to the front part of his heart is 100 blocked. Said surgery wouldn t help him because the heart muscle was dead . So he only has 25 percent working. He has no energy hard time breathing. Dr said he needed a difiberlatir but heart was to weak and heart rate was to fast to try to put on in at this time. I m really worried about him. The dr said he was a walking time bomb. What do I need to look for and how can I help him? Can a person live a long life in this shap
