Jan 12, 2018 · post tricuspid valve replacement in Heart & Blood Health

Hi Sherlb. I was diagnosed with the aneurysm on November 17, 2017. I am retired, 73 years old, and led a fairly active lifestyle up till now. My aneurysm is 4.7 cm and my cardiologist operates when it gets over 5.5 cm. We are taking my blood pressure on a daily basis and doing a CT every 2 months. New medication has made me weak, non motivated, depressed, and very little sleep. I know things are going to get back to where I was before this was discovered, and they will for you too. Just hang in there and keep fighting.

Thank you Kanaaz. I did as my doctor about the supplement he said it could cause more damage, but made light of it. I am 73 years old, that may be the reason. I was diagnosed on November 17, 2017. I am borderline diabetic, never smoked, never drank, so other than discovering the aneurism I am in fairly good health. I have taken Norvasc 5mg for more than 20 years, and Pravastatin for about 15 years. These are the only 2 prescription drugs I have taken on a regular basis up till now. The testosterone supplements made me more energetic, seemed to be more mentally alert. New medication seems to make me weak, can’t sleep, depressed, lack of motivation.
