I'm sorry for your condition, but nobody can answer this for you. I know you are tired, with that many surgeries in such a short time, you can't help but be fatigued. You ultimately have to weigh the pros and cons of having another surgery. I don't know how you've lost 3 other people as a result of your heart problem, but this is your life and you need to do what is best for you. I'm sorry I cannot, nor should anyone, give you advice for your life in this regard. I just hope and pray that if you go through with the next surgery, that it will be your last and you will not have to go through another dilemma like this again. Good luck in your decision!

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.
