Diagnosed with sever aortic stenosis and small amount of plaque around heart vessels. cardiologist recommended bi pass. It was found that I was anaemic as well and also had small ulcer. Tests and procedures have been set up to identify type of anaemia and I have had a blood transfusion. Ulcer to be treated and lung function tests done. I notice on discharge from hospital after transfusion that thyhroid function tests were done and of course came back showing that I was out of kilter.
As far as thyroid I feel so much better than on levothyroxine and I was diagnosed with the murmur before taking T3. Valve degeneration has followed the 'normal' pattern and in any event I am insulin dependent diabetic which carries a significant risk factor for my heart condition. I have never had heart palpitations since taking T3 and followed closely Paul Robinson's book for advice and did my own research before taking T3.
My question is can the surgeon and cardiologist force me to go back to levothyroxine prior to operation by refusing to allow the bi pass to go ahead?
Anyone out there have any answers this is urgent because operation due 14th March and I wish to avoid heart attack and or stroke. Sorry to be dramatic but please help.
