Dear friend, I am very sorry to know about your father's death. Actually, bypass surgery is not a 100% solution and even today inspite of so much advancement in the field of medical science a small failure rate still remains in all surgeries. We have to belive in luck factor also. May his soul rest in peace.... thats what I can say. Please do not blame doctor for this. The death is unfortunate but it was in his destiny.... god bless his soul.

I m a 65 year old female, 5 6 , weight 195, taking anti-depressants. Otherwise in good health. I have a small heart. Having this are there any health issues I could have? I ve had stress tests done, but haven t had any issues. My father had by-pass surgery, then died 15 years later of heart failure. Can having the small heart cause a stroke?
Hi there. I am a 30 year old female. BMI 28.1. Over the last 6 months I have had regular almost daily episodes of heart palpitations. I have gone to the doctor and had tests done. ECG came back with normal results. Echo came back with what doctor said is normal leakage in 3 heart valves. Had a holter monitor test done and it picked up on average 2 supraventricular ectopic complexes per hour. Total of 5 ventricular ectopic complexes. And 1 ventricular triplet during the duration of the test. The test lasted approx 20 hours. I do have a family history of heart disease. My father passed away in July 2015 from heart disease after his 10th heart attack and unfortuently took an hour to get his heart beating again which left him zero hope of recovery. He had previously a triple bypass surgery and had been living as a pacemaker dependant since December of 04. My father was diagnosed with angina when he was in his late 30 s. he was 63 when he passed away. My paternal grandmother has also been living with similar heart problems as my father for years. She is now 85. My late paternal grandfather also had a triple bypass surgery in the past. My question I guess is should in be following up with a cardiologist? My doctor told me not to worry and honestly he s a bit of a quack. Not an understatement. Would it be advisable to get a second opinion?

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?
My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
Recently I have been experiencing a "racing heart" ulse rate upwards to 111, and general tiredness. Is this something to be concerned about since heart disease runs in my family, including a sibling that died from a heat attack at age 57. My age is 56
