What is CTEPH?
Thank you I Am on water pills because of congestive hart failure I just did not know all abbreviations. What is BP? I have a conflict with my Pulmanologist /Cardiologist who was keeping me on the big dose of Adempas (which actually did not help) and I retained so much water that dosage of water pills had to go up all the time. I don’t know what it is with her and Pharmac. Co but she does not even want to try something different. In addition I am getting Opsumit My huge dose of water pills had to be decrease due to so called dryness in my kidney but I had to fight hard to decrease dose of Adempas But she still does not want to try different medication All what she cares- To do Cardiocatheterizatio. If she could- she would do it every 3-4 month but do it only every year. And she is considered among 5 best PH doctors in NY. My visits are done by Nurce Practitioner and she does not even bother to listen to my longs or heart Wednesday I am going to see PAH specialist from the other Hospital
Thanks for listening
CHF is congestive heart failure. Heart has to work harder if body is retaining fluid. Also lungs will fill with fluid. Ask you doctor if you need to be on water pills and potassium. BP meds usually has a diuretic effect. Did you know your kidneys regulate BP.?
Me too. I'm 75 y/o female dx'd 2017. Being treated for CHF. Only tx for PH is oxygen. SOB on exertion.
