I am healed from neck surgery in Dec. When I saw my heart Dr before surgery he was talking about the TARV. I am experiencing more shortness of breath and my legs are hurting when I walk. I have an appointment in April, should I get in sooner?
If you have confidence in your Cardiac Doc that's all that counts.
Feel better and may GOD Bless you
I'm not sure ~now. I have stents and have had shortness of breath with that. And, I have Afib & Supraventriculartachycardia, since 2009.
But, for awhile now, I have been having shortness of breath. With some other symptoms, so, my cardiologist I've had since 2006, put me thru standard tests in Feb., but then sent me to city hospital for 'special' better look test. Result was my Aortic valve is not working quite up to par, not sure what all that means, dont know much about valves...no need for intervention now, but looming is something I dread...Open Heart Surgery.
Anyway, he said he doesn't think the shortness of breath is heart related.
Seems weird to me, but, he's the Dr.
Didn't mean to say so much.
The valve calcification is not good most
likely has to be replaced down the road.
I know from my own personal experience when my aortic valve became extremely calcified I was dizzy and short of breath.
So please listen to the advice of your cardiologist
