My lungs are in good shape but the pulmonary artery going into my heart gas stenosis. Why can't the doctors put a Stent into that area like the ones I have all around my heart?
My lungs are not good I have Sarcoidosis and that causes granuloma in the lungs and lymph nodes. And due to all of that I have COPD. All of these thing can cause Pulmonary Hypertension and Diastolic CHF.
i'm also having side effects from my meds,
all i can say is hang in there and hopefully your doctors might find the right combination of medicines and you will be enjoying a better quality of life,
all the best
Oh my goodness, I feel like an experiment rat. I have tried so many drugs starting with blood thinners that caused me to bleed in all my organs. The sildenafil caused horrible headaches. Opsumit gave me no side effects. Yeah! Uptravi caused horrible headaches and uncontrollable vomiting. Just started Adempas. Doing okay on it, not great but okay. My journey with heart disease started when I was 44. I am serious about quality of life over quantity of life. Doctors don't want to give up on me but I am tired. Everyone have a great weekend!!!
Google endovascular stents. Its doable especially in congenital heart like Tetraology of Fallot but out comes may not be favorable. Don’t know affect of PH
