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?
For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.
I am a 44 year old male with a family history of hyperlipidemia and heart disease. My father had a AMI at age 50 and expired. His father expired at age 51 with an AMi. Both were sudden death. I had a Cardiac CTA yesterday which revealed a calcium score of 252. The report revealed a 70-80% blockage to the middle of the LAD with about 50% occlusion on both of the ends. Seeing a cardiologist tomorrow. What do you think the treatment will be for this?
I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
