Brenda (2 years ago):
I just had open heart surgery, mitral valve repair and maze procedure. Same time going through stressful divorce of 28 years. Five months out of surgery started to take lexipro. One month later I have chest pain as if I never had the surgery. Can lexipro interfere with my Heart healing? Can it cause internal bleeding?
