@pema2, that's a lot to deal with all at once.

You're wise to coordinate the two specialities: Cardiology and Oncology. Mayo Clinic offers expertise in addressing heart problems and cancer (called cardio-oncology), potential or current issues. The Cardio-Oncology Clinic (https://www.mayoclinic.org/departments-centers/cardio-oncology-clinic/overview/ovc-20442193) evaluates people prior to cancer treatment and patients who have experienced side effects due their treatment. That might be an option where you're being treated too.

In addition to scheduling surgery, your oncology team should be aware of your cardiac condition when considering future cancer treatments.

How long ago was your cardiac surgery? I look forward to hearing how things proceed.

I had the watchman device implanted about 2 1/2 weeks ago unfortunately at the same time other things were developing which resulted in me getting a cat scan vaginal ultrasound and then a biopsy leading to the diagnosis of uterine .cancer. It has been very challenging to get the doctors in this area to communicate with one another and much has been left up to me the patient to try to ensure that there is coordination in the medical services being provided. I don’t know of anything like the team approach you’re speaking of here where I live.
