  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I had a quadruple Heart Bypass 4 months ago. Recovering great until I started
    having chest pain. The doctor told me after a catherization that 2 veins that
    were taken from my leg and used to graft were so small that the graft didn't take. I have chest pain and the doctor diagnosed me as having Angina. He has
    two treatment options. One that I wait to see if my veins will reroute themselves and the other is an Angioplasty. I'm currently having chest pain and am on a Nitroglycerin patch,tablets and Norvasc.
    Has anyone been through this or has any insight?

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I am a very active 63 year old woman. Most of my friends marvel at my energy level. (at least, they did until two months ago) Had breast cancer in 2001 with mastectomy and chemo.

    Developed chemo induced cardiomyopathy 7 years ago. Took beta blocker and ace inhibitor for a couple of years. E-F increased from 20 to 45%. Felt so good and didn't like the side-effects of emotional flatness and loss of libido (vaginal dryness) so stopped. Have felt really great until two months ago.

    Cardiomyopathy has returned in 2010. E-F is 35%. Shortness of breath, tired, not able to walk my 3 miles a day. I am usually a very active person, but this has slowed me down again.

    Am hoping that a return to the meds will help me boost my E-F back to 45%. Really don't like the side effects.
