I really need someone to "hear" me on line at least. My Dr's are being vague. First of all I have permanant atrial fibrillation, stage three kidney disease, a blocked left carotid artery, Sleep Apnia. And RLS. (restless leg.) I had a full hysterectomy in April 2018 and another surgery in May for a blood clot in less then 30 days. I'm recovering from both. So when I experience symptoms I never know which Dr to consult. Primary care? Cardiology? Vascular surgeon? Nephrologist? Surgeon/oncologist who performed the hysterectomy (laproscopy) my leg where the blood clot was removed is always swollen and I take water pills for that. Either my blood pressure is high and heart rate low, or the other way around. Lately my systolic BP # is high, 170, 150, 145 and heart rate from 60 to 80. If its below 60 I cant take my Digoxin which is for A Fib. Recently I had an xray that showed water on the lungs so my primary care ordered a CT SCAN which showed water on the lungs and some scar tissue from old infections (chronic bronchitis) Tuberculosis in the 40's.mo prognosis after the Ct scan. I'm still coughing, dry. She is calling me today. I never feel well enough to go anywhere and when I do, I take, pain pill , Tramadol, which gives me a hangover. So this is my life from now on? Sometimes I cant walk properly I can't wear anything but flip flops. I'm tired all the time and cat take a nap without my CPAP machine. I dont know its its shortness of breath or a tight chest. But I am having trouble breathing when I try to take a nap without my mask. Its 6am I've been awake since 2:30 potty break
Ok good luck. What's wrong with me, lately?
