I Just Had A Left And Right Heart Cath. The Cardiologist Said That All I Need To Do Is Take Lasix And I'll Be Ok. Does This Sound Right?

I Just Had A Left And Right Heart Cath. The Cardiologist Said That All I Need To Do Is Take Lasix And I'll Be Ok. Does This Sound Right?

I have mild heart failure and moderate PH. The doc said that fluid was causing my issues - so eliminate the fluid and I'll be ok. I thought fluid was a symptom - not the cause. Woud love to hear your thoughts.

The more you learn about PH, the more you will learn about how well or how poorly your doctor is treating you and your disease. I went to a cardiologist and it took him almost a year of being my… read more

Face Mask

Face Mask

Are you still wearing face masks? I seem to wear it out to medical facilities (most still require it in AZ-not my Dr. Heart's office btw), shopping but not when I go bowling or at work. I work where there are 2 separate office/warehouses and the main office where I work out of (most of the day) only has a staff of 3 (includes me). The larger warehouse has a younger crew with 5 full time employees and has seasonal employees (around another 6) during the school year.

I remember the days when… read more

Anyone Else Having Trouble With The Story Updates?

Anyone Else Having Trouble With The Story Updates?

Belly Pain

Belly Pain

Currently I take sidenfil and prescription Metamucil (for my complaint of having "rabbit turds" as per my medical history), and Paxil (generic). I have been having stomach discomfort that is a little warm, focused towards the middle and mild cramping. I haven't digested anything that is hot.

Does anyone have this as well? I wonder if it is the side effect(s)? I would do a test by the process of elimination but I do not want to mess with my medical maintenance. Maybe it is the Metamucil? I… read more
