Has anyone with CTEPH undergone a balloon pulmonary angioplasty? I will be the first patient at the Mayo Clinic Jacksonville Florida and I am wondering what to expect if someone else has had this procedure.
Does anyone get a weird feeling in their arms and legs? I'm not quite sure how to describe it. It's like the blood feels cold. Not really a numbness. Just a weird feeling. I get that even when I'm laying down doing nothing. My doctor did not know what that was. I have my heart catheter on Friday. He said he would know more then, and will decide if I'm eligible for a thromboendarterectomy. My lung pressure was estimated 120-130.
