Apr 25, 2017 · Pulmonary hypertension in Lung Health

Well as far as heart issues it started when in 1961 that my mitral valve was not working properly. In 1966 I had open heart surgery at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI (I was 11 years old) After that I was able to do just about anything for 41 years. Then things went the other way in 2007 I had a heart attack they put 5 stents in. Between then and 2015 I had 3-5 bouts of Atrial Fibrillation and then on May 25,2015 I had another heart attack which lead to by pass surgery in Sept. 2015. It was after that around Nov. 2015 I became shorter and shorter of breath. Well as we all with PH how long it takes to finally get diagnosed with PH it was Feb.17,2017 for me. I have had all the test you can think of from heart to lungs but it wasn’t until I had the right heart cath that they found out I had PH. I also have sleep apnea on top of all that. I have oxygen hooked to my cpap machine and I also have portable oxygen. I hope this wasn’t to long, I’m looking forward to hear from other folks. Thank You Dave
