Oct 6, 2017 · Tikosyn for A Fib in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I went to Mayo Clinic in MN, for evaluation of my dyspnea and A Fib.I was told that Ablation success rate is low and the complications rate are high ( possibly due to my age 90 , CAD, 10 coronary stents ,etc), so they suggested Tikosyn which I am taking for 2 weeks now . Feeling better since, able to do treadmill for 35 min and 1.5 miles daily. Does anyone have any history of Tikosyn treatment?
Thank you

Sep 15, 2017 · Pacemaker recipients. in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I had workup with Xray, blood tests, EKG,, Pacemaker interrogation and evaluation at Mayo.I was told my continuing A Fib or Atrial flutter causing my dyspnea, can not be treated with the Pacemaker and any further adjustments is not necessary. But I had a cardiac cath which revealed no occlusions and next Monday I will have a TEE and will stay 3 days in the Hospital to evaluate my candidacy for Tikosyn treatment, even though I had tried it in 2001 without benefit They did not encourage to perform Ablation due to higher risks and small chance of success
Thank you for your inquiry

Yes, I did and I have no signs of heart failure, but I am going to Mayo Clinic on Sep 14 in Rochester, MN for evaluation, My doctor recommended this and I have great reports from people who have received excellent care at Mayo
Hope for the best

I had a Dual chamber Pacemaker, but due to persistent dyspnea(shortness of breath ) it was upgraded to Bi ventricular Pacemaker , but I still have dyspnea and several checks and changes of my Pacemaker did not help my symptoms. I wonder if anyone had a similar experience or any advice

Jul 25, 2017 · Acid Reflux and its Symptoms in Digestive Health

I was diagnosed with Gastritis, Reactive gastropathy. on Endoscopy. I am OK in the morning but have pain in my stomach after lunch and dinner. Most medications and diet does not help to eliminate symptoms. In desperation I am going to Acupuncture now , had 15 sessions, but no permanent result yet.
Pain is worse at times , no matter how careful I am about my diet. Have taken PPI,s, Acid Relief 360, Vital Red , Zantac etc. Someone suggested DGL now , anyone has had any experience with DGL?
Thank you
