Medications After TAVR

Medications After TAVR

I had the TAVR procedure in April, 2020. Everything is going well, but seasonal allergies due to pollens are a problem for me. I was taking Sudafed for relief until my cardiologist told me that I shouldn't take that particular drug because of the prosthetic valve, but I could take other allergy meds. I am wondering if others have been told to avoid certain medications after TAVR. They didn't mention anything in my after care instructions, so I was surprised when I learned about Sudafed.

Breathing Problems

Breathing Problems

I've had a terrible struggle with shortness of breath for months now. They have done all kinds of tests & found that I have a paralyzed diaphragm and I'm also retaining fluid (so "heart failure" too I guess). Has anyone else experienced this?
Thank you,
Liane
