Coumadin And Low Iron???

Coumadin And Low Iron???

Has anyone on Coumadin experienced having an issue with low iron? I had been in the hospital since my surgery due to some symptoms of palpitations and light headedness, and even some episodes of blurred vision. I check out ok cardiac wise every time I get checked out for this, but this past hospital visit had I was told my iron levels were low and needed supplementation, kind of as an afterthought on my way home.

I would think a repair or replacement would help but I would talk it over with a cardiologist first and do some research. Just a suggestion.

Your doctor should be willing to listen and work with you. What meds are you on, if you don't mind me asking. Sometimes they will contribute to the problem more than solve it.

Is Anyone Available To Discuss Their Experience With A Mechanical Valve?

Is Anyone Available To Discuss Their Experience With A Mechanical Valve?

Hello. I'm new here and still trying to figure this site out. I am hoping to meet someone who has experience with a mechanical valve. I had mine placed this past May and it is definitely noticeable. I am constantly feeling the beating and it just seems to beat so hard. My Dad actually came up with a good way to describe it. It is as if I have the drum beat from the movie Jumanji inside of me constantly. Is there anyone out there that has a mechanical valve that has a similar experience with it?

Has Anyone With Heart Failure Had Heart Attack After Vaccine

Has Anyone With Heart Failure Had Heart Attack After Vaccine

From my experience saying anything negative about the covid vaccine is taboo and gets censored, so I am hesitant to ask this question; but here it goes
I have had heart failure for almost 10 years. My heart got progressively worse over the years, largely due to being prescribed the wrong meds. I had no quality of life. My EF was down to 17% and they implanted a defibrillator in late 2016. The first 6 months I had 84 episodes and 5 activations. They couldn't get all the wires hooked up so only… read more

Had CABG 3X Bypass Surgery 2 Months Ago. Since The Operation I Have A Really Bad Taste, And My Smell Is Very Intense.

Since the operation I have a really bad taste, and my smell is very intense. Most foods taste horrible, especially eggs, cheese, and most foods. The only thing that taste ok is fruit. I am on clopidogrel, atorvastatin, metoprolol, and several vitamin supplements. Cardiologist took me off lisinopril to try to see if that was the cause, but after a week, still an issue. Has anyone else had this problem, if so did you figure out what was causing it.
