While I’m dealing with AFib I need to join a conversation on Uncontrollable bowels every morning. It’s been going on for months. I seem to lose about 8oz a day. I thought I needed more fiber so added Psyllium Husk. Eating high fiber foods. Added magnesium but that seemed to make it worse. At least it’s still light brown in color. I’m happy about the weight loss, but I feel like it’s an unhealthy way. Can anyone guide me? Grandmajan

Nate, Thank you, Yes I follow the AFib thread. I usually don’t have a lot to say but I read them all.

Dec 10, 2019 · Weaning off Metoprolol in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Hi vyronp: I had a DVT and they found AFib going on. Started me out on 25mg of Metoprolol. 2 x a day. I was a slug. I kept cutting down. I still take 1/2 of a 25mg once a day. But now a new Dr has decided that my heart was beating so slow as to not keep the fluid build up down. So I'm asking like you, why keep the Metorpolol. I also have never had high blood pressure. Right now it's 122/84/heart 74.

Hi Mari: When did you have your injections? I can't seem to get to Dr. Thomas Vangsness with USC .The phone numbers don't work and calling USC directly has been frustrating. I would gladly drive from San Diego to LA to see him. Or maybe some one knows a resource in San Diego. I found one recommended Dr near here. His price is $650. per joint + the initial visit is $240. I'm so grateful for all of the information that comes on this chat site.

Hi: Mari: did you have a series of injections in each joint? I'm calling Dr Vangsness Tues. I have a shoulder, lower back and both knees. One knee does not have the ACL. Thank you for the info.

One more question, I'm now on Warfrin because I have Afib and leaky left valve. Is that a problem? Frankly I would like to find a way to prevent clots or thin my blood without taking chemical blood thinners.

Thank You , thank You. For the information. I live in San Diego, So will look up Dr. Vangsness, today. It's more than worth a try. I realize that not all joints are good candidates for PRP, but by the same token not all TKR's turn out right either.
