Surgery and PH

Posted on March 28, 2018

"I was diagnosed with PH after having blood clots in my lungs along with a blood clot in both my legs. Now I know why I'm out of breath all the time. Today has not been a good day. Think the pollen is getting to me. But I go to the pulmonary doctor on the 16th to get a clearance to have surgery." - A member of myPHteam

That sounds weird. Can’t they put you on oxygen during the surgery? That’s a heck of a thing to be told
