How long one should away from sex life after angioplasty.

DM - Cardiology, MD - General Medicine
Cardiologist,
How long one should away from sex life after angioplasty.
Minimum 4 weeks if it was an elective non emergent intervention. If the angioplasty was conducted during or after a heart attack then abstain for about 3 months. Before resuming get an echo done to assess cardiac performance. If heart ejection fraction is less than 50%, get a modified bruce stress test to assess early cardiovascular fitness.

Hi Nitish Definitely your digestive system is weak and you are an anxious person. Means your anxiety is having a direct effect on your digestive system causing all the problems. Take Lyco200/1 dose ( homoeopathic medicine) and give feedback after 7 days. You will definitely get better.

Dear lybrate-user, while your concern for using insulin is valid, but it seems you are putting him at risk associated with uncontrolled diabetes. You have to understand that at some point oral meds will be insufficient to controll blood sugar hence insulin is needed which is most effective way. Uncontrolled blood sugar can lead to too many longterm complications like stroke, heart attack, loss of vision, leg ulcer etc. My advice would be to follow your physician advice even if it means starting insulin.

Drinking alcohol any amount is harmful. This is the recommendation of american heart association and fda. Diabetes and htn is a combination where you need to adhere to healthy lifestyle if you want to remain health. Drinking alcohol do not go with healthy lifestyle.
