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

On myPHteam, the social network and online support group for those living with pulmonary hypertension, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Surgery is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about surgery:

I have surgery next week and I can't seem to stay out of trouble!

A member shares about congenital heart defect and how it impacts her PH.

Trying aqua therapy for my knee because surgery isn't an option with my PH.

A member shares her story of heart surgeries and PH.

I'm wondering if my surgery has made my PH worse.

My PH was discovered accidentally when I was trying to get clearance for gastric bypass surgery!
