constrictive percardia due to calcium deposit

went to see cardio surgeon on Tuesday who told me he was willing to operate on removal of calcium deposits as it is holding my heart and stopping it filling properly already have severe LV heart failure but surgeon said that I have a 70% to 80% chance of survival but as yet no information about what happens if I do not have it done.

anyone out there had or have this condition if so would be interested to hear your views

No, sorry. My wife's calcium build up was in the coronary arteries to the atrium.

Dr Ron Rosedale attributes the accumulation to 'communication' problems due to hormone imbalance. The remedy, unsurprisingly, is to lower the glycaemic load of the diet.
