Finally got hold of the scheduling folks on Friday. Turns out the doctor didn't put in his notes that mom had declined taking part in a clinical research trial. If you don't specifically say "no," then they assume you are. So mom's paperwork was sitting on someone's desk for review....

"Are you SURE she declined it?" "I was sitting right there..." Sigh....

So - mom's heart procedure is scheduled for October 8. Yea!!!

Her sister's procedure was on Thursday & went very well from what we understand. So now mom has some idea of what will be involved.

Morning. Mom's heart valve replacement is tomorrow sometime. We have to be there somewhere between 5:30-8:30 am (with a 2 hour drive). So I'll be going up this afternoon.

She'll be in the hospital for at least one night, two or three if they have to install a pacemaker. I'm planning to be there through the weekend, so will be mostly out of touch...

BIG hug to you and your mom. Katie has a pacemaker, so I know what you'll be going through on that part -- not too awful. Fingers crossed for both of you on the other. I love you  It's amazing that they can have her back home in such a short period of time. Cool

Morning everyone. Mom's procedure went well. She has a temp pacemaker in, but as of last night they were not expecting to have to make it permanent. She'll be in at least until tomorrow. We'll know more later today.

Thank you for your prayers & well-wishes!

She's home & doing fine. Kicked me out today... Was planning on staying thru the weekend...

Now that THAT'S taken care of we've got surgery #2 scheduled for Dec 10.

Once we got things kicked into high gear, we're moving along nicely now! LOL, it's times like these that she's glad I tend to be a bulldog & just shove things along... Don't mess with my momma!!!

Mom got a call from the hospital. Said her monitor was showing that she was in a-fib / bit of an irregular heartbeat. Changed up some meds right then & there that they wanted her to go on immediately.

I'm taking her down there on Tuesday so they can take a look. Wasn't TOO concerned about it. Gave me an opportunity to schedule later if I wanted... ??? No! Now, please!

My a-fib was diagnosed back in 2000.  Couldn't be shocked back into normal rhythm.  I was given different medications to control things but I still have a-fib.  Last visit I asked my doctor how much my life would be shortened by the a-fib.  He said not at all because of the different medicines I am taking to control things.

So having A-fib is not a problem for me if I continue on the medications..  But it is worrisome that it just occurred with your mother.  Hopefully they can reverse the problem.

Met with the electrocardio guy this morning. Mom has a slight case of a-fib. He's got her on Eliquis. He's hoping to keep her on it, but she says that she's had a sore throat ever since starting it two weeks ago. Doesn't see giving her a pacemaker anytime in the foreseeable future. Yea!

He's cleared her to have the 2nd back epidural on time.

He wants to see her again in 6 months. Thankfully he comes up to her area once/month....

Post  Yardslave on 10/22/2019, 6:10 pm

That's good she's on something to prevent blood clots that can result from the afib. There is a higher risk for strokes in persons suffering from afib. The meds are to prevent clots, not to treat your Mom's afib. To treat the cause rather than the effect, there is a procedure called an ablation that is performed by a cardiology sub-specialist called an Electrophysiologist. Performing a 3D electrophysiology study will reveal the electrical impulse tract responsible for the "misfiring" afib. The doctor can use this information to manipulate a specially equipped catheter inside a blood vessel to a specific area in the heart's wall and "zap" it away. I have two friends that have had the procedure and they no longer have afib.

Thanks, Cajun Cappy.... I appreciate that! We've really missed you around here!

Yardslave, interesting information. Thank you! My dad had a-fib, so I'm a LITTLE familiar with it.... But as his Alzheimer's took over, it became impossible for him to tell when he was having problems.

The electro-guy we met with yesterday thinks that the left branch was somehow damaged during the valve replacement. He doesn't see it coming back. The right branch is handling the load fine, but he has that same concern about strokes.

I'm home. At least for a few days, lol! We go next week to see if the heart guys are going to release her.

The cost for the TAVR was $191,000 USD. And that's JUST the couple of days in for the TAVR itself. Thank goodness for insurance & Medicare.

We had an... interesting... conversation last night. I'm starting to find out just how much she doesn't remember from the last several months due to all the pain meds she's been on. Thankfully she's been able to get off of most of them.

She's getting another back epidural next Tuesday. Then Thursday to the heart guys.

HOPEFULLY this one will take care of the pain for 4-5 years. This is the 3rd time she's gone through them. They can give you up to 3. But with the narrowing of the spinal canal, I'm not sure how this one will do....
