She'll be OK. I recently had a quadruple heart bypass and I didn't even know my arteries were 100% clogged, until I had that little heart attack (I am just alittle older then your mom). There was no heart damage, which is a good thing. But, I see people every single week who have had a stent or two put in or a bypass and more...And some people have had more than one surgery. I think your mom will be fine, as long as she makes sure her blood pressure and cholesterol are good, and she exercises, and eats reasonably and sees her doctor regularly, for any tests she might need. Also, my husband has been in the medical device field for years, and we are pretty much up to date on all the great, new technologies out there. Survival rates are so much higher now, then in the past. So, put your faith in the doctors and your Higher Power and be positive. I wish you all the best!

87 year old dad diagnosed with over 90% kidney failure. He cannot walk due to spinal issues and asked if the dialysis would enable him to possibly get on his feet with walker again. When told no by drs, he chose not to do dialysis; he has hospice now but I am begging him to take the liquid morphine and he refuses it fearing he will become immune to it; how long can this go on? The catheter and bag have blood; he is shaking and weak but still cognizant. I wish to know how long does he have to live as I do not want him to suffer

Hey, my friend cut her radial artery last night. Her dad told me it was on her forearm not her wrist. I have no idea if she s alive or dead I ve tried everything to get hold of her, I m so worried. What are the chances for dying of something like that, how deep would she have to had cut. If not what kind of long term damage could there be? How much blood would she have lost roughly, would that damage her brain? Thank you. :)

Hello, I am a 39 year old female. I received my second ever kenalog shot for allergies over a week ago. The one previous was a year prior to that. In the past 3 days I have been experiencing heart palpitaions the entire day and night. I have had palpiations for years now, but only once in a while. The palpitions I am now experiencing are continuous. I had been tested about five years ago and was told I had tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation. Several years later a different doctor sent me for testing and it showed no regurgitation. It doesnt make sense to me. My question is do you think it is possible the palpitations are caused by the kenalog? I was put back on Singulair as well but stopped taking it to see if that was the culprit. I am uneasy with this feeling and it is stressing me out more so worrying about it. Thank you in advance.

My 89 year old father just had a triple bypass and valve replacement. He lost kidney function after the surgery. They are now wanting him to go to a long term acute center, I m guessing because his heart rate registers low in the upper 40 s to mid 50 s. how long can I expect him to last on dialysis

Now my heart rate is faster while on warafin.I had the open herat surgery 9 months ago.why is my heart rate fast? . Could the thinner cause more blood flow at a faster rate?
