My mum needs heart surgery
Posted 17 June 2009 - 04:16 PM
We had no idea she had 2 holes!!! and ? the defibrilator.
So girls is this normal?
Ive just spoken with her and she is in a state of shock she does have the 2 holes and he asked if she had ever had a heart attack? no, had she ever been VERY sick umm no i thought maybe when her dr overdosed her on thyroxine !! but then she remembered she had been very ill once with the flu and he said well the heart pump is damaged and that damage is caused by a bad virus!!!! so well maybe the flu years ago.Hes added another tablet to the list and she must stay out of the sun.He isnt sure if he can do both holes at once and the defibrilator will /can be done more locally after the closing of the holes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!.When she asked when all this would happen he said if we havnt called you in the next four months ring us back Im so far away and she needs it done.Thanks girls if your still reading i really needed to off load.If anyone out there has any info on heart surgery i would appreciate your 2 pennies worth thanks maria xx

Heart problems are so scary. Brandon (FI) got a call from our next door neighbor last summer, she just wasn't feeling well and so he took her to the ER-she had suffered several mild heart attacks over the previous day and a half and they had her in for open heart surgery the next morning. It took her a while to heal and she'll have a scar-but the good news is she's doing great now. She said she hasn't felt this good in years now that her heart is functioning properly. I hope your mom has the same experience (minus the open heart surgery and scar part!)

What the hell
I can only imagine the stress and fear you are feeling-let alone your poor mother! I'm completely unfamiliar with the condition, but what are the chances of her being able to consult with a second doctor? It just doesn't sound right to me that she has this SERIOUS medical condition and her physician is following it in such a laid back manner.
You're in my thoughts...blessings to you and your mother.
