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. Looking it up it seems these symptoms could be due to the low iron and the low iron… read more

TAVR is possible. High risk of stroke. Also 7 inch dacron aortic root. I wonder if I can get 25 years out of this one. Hard to get something fixed when it is not noticeably broken,

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.

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.
