She goes to the advanced heart failure clinic in the Oklahoma Heart Institute. Have not had a second opinion. Type of cancer was breast cancer. Radiation protocol at the time was irradiating the medialstinal nodes and subclavicular nodes. She had an aortic valve replacement, biological, in 2015 and shortly thereafter went into right heart failure. Multiple pleural effusions with chest tubes that caused more scarring. Oklahoma Heart says there is too much scar tissue for a heart transplant. She has a mitral clip to reduce regurgitation, a synchronizing pacemaker with a defibrillator and cardio-mem in the pulmonary artery.
If you feel that it would be worth pursuing, we would like to hear from you. We are also very interested in research on right-heart pump. Thank you.
