Has anyone else had fluid in their lungs several months after the procedure?

Hi @jh56, my husband had a septal myectomy and a triple bypass on December 17 of this year with Dr Schaff. You are in great hands with Dr Schaff and with all the post surgery nurses at St Mary's. My husband is recovery well and will finish his cardiac rehab next week. Make sure you have an electric recliner to sit in and sleep in when you arrive home.

Jan 13, 2018 · Life after HCM Surgery in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

My husband is almost 4 weeks post surgery. He has been doing wonderful. He had a myectomy and a triply bypass. Someone had suggested that we buy a remote recliner. So thankful we were prepared. He is still sleeping/sitting in the recliner for the most part. When he tries to lie flat he coughs. Be prepared for no appetite and also that nothing he eats tastes good. I made the mistake of taking a pair of pants a size smaller for him to travel home in ( we are 7 hours away). I did not realize that he would be bloated. He was 12 lbs heavier than when he checked in.

Your husband will do great. Every nurse at St Mary’s was amazing and they will keep your husband and you feeling positive. We could not have had better care.

Jan 7, 2018 · Myectomy recovery. in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

My husband is recovery from a triple by pass and myectomy done at the end of December. He has good days and other days that he cannot stay awake. He also coughs when he tries to lie down and then cannot stop. His feet/ankles are a little swollen which they say to lie down and elevate your feet above your heart. Any suggestions?
