After Ablation In January And CHF With Preserved EF Diagnosis In July, I Have Constant Chest Pressure And Slight SOB. Is This Normal?

After Ablation In January And CHF With Preserved EF Diagnosis In July, I Have Constant Chest Pressure And Slight SOB. Is This Normal?

Ablation was for Afib and things didn’t quite seem right afterwards. CHF was diagnosed at the end of July and have had constant chest pressure since being put on all kinds of meds. In fact, the chest pressure is worse since I was put on all the meds. Guess I’m wondering if things will keep getting worse or if I can expect some relief from the uncomfortable pressure in my chest.

Pacemaker

Pacemaker

I had a pacemaker put in about 8 years ago. Then about 5 years ago, I had that pacemaker removed and a defibrillator pacemaker put in its’ place. Am I the only one who didn’t feel any differently when each of my pacemakers were installed? I don’t faint anymore. That is about the only difference. As far as being aware of a pacemaker, I feel nothing. Maybe that is a good thing. Maybe I feel so well, maybe I don’t feel anything.

Repeat Open Heart Valve Replacement Surgery

Repeat Open Heart Valve Replacement Surgery

Has anyone had a redo sternotomy to replace a calcified mitral valve?
This is because they can't replace a mitral valve through a TAVR procedure in the USA yet. There are clinical trials ongoing, but they are very selective on picking the right candidates. Asking as Iam facing this situation (open heart again) and am told that it is high risk, ie. 80 % sucess rate average. Your comments please. Thank you.
