My husband could stay with me when I had my heart surgeries. I would think you could stay with your daughter. Good question to ask the Dr. and hospital staff.

You should be able to have it filled by a general Dr. Most of my heart medication are filled this way. Maybe some states are different. Hope this helped.

May 25, 2018 · Atrial fibrillation and medication side effects in Heart Rhythm Conditions

After almost 3 1/2 years of dealing with nausea from the medication I take for my a-fib I am still frustrated that I don't have an answer. I think the one that causes me the most problem is Carvedilol. I feel if I change from what I am taking, that the effects will be the same. The Dr. gave me something to help with anxiety and nausea, it has helped some, but I feel I am just taking more pills to help the side effects of other medication. I have a-fib all the time so know I have to take something. Any suggestions what to do. It gets hard dealing with this.

Jan 21, 2018 · MITRAL VALVE REPAIR OR REPLACE in Heart & Blood Health

@777darla, I know it is scary to be told you have to have heart sugery, I went though it twice. Don’t know which one scared me most. Saying that, it was not as bad as I thought it would be. I had both done at Mayo in Rochester Minnesota and I felt I was in great hands both times. First fews days are the worst, but even then I was aways given somthing to help with the pain. Not something I would want to do again, but know it is something being done many times each day in all the hospitals and the rate of success is remarkable. Be assured you will be in great hands. Take care.

Jan 21, 2018 · MITRAL VALVE REPAIR OR REPLACE in Heart & Blood Health

It never hurts to get a second opinion, but I have had two mitral valve sugeries. One to repair my mitral valve and the other to replace my valve. My Dr. never told me I had to have the surgeries until the leak was severe. I would not worry about it at this time. Hope this helps.

Nov 19, 2017 · heartbeat too fast with congestive heart failure in Heart & Blood Health

I have had a few episodes since my last heart surgery 4 years ago. I ended up in ER twice and they give me meds intravenously to slow my heart beats. I am now on Carvedilol. I take twice a day. It helps a lot, but I do have nausea daily, and I feel the meditation is part of my problem.

Sep 14, 2017 · mitral/tricuspid valves in Heart & Blood Health

My second heart surgery went well, and I felt really good for about a year after sugery and then my nausea came back and my afib got worse. I have afib all the time now instead of just off and on as before. Mine was also at a sever level before surgery. Hope all goes.well for you. Please keep us updated. Thanks.
