Maybe it was simple hyperacidity leading to chest pain, but for precaution it is good that you have your ECG done. But sometimes ECG doesn't show abnormality even if there is heart issue. Therefore I will suggest you without much worry you get done your 2D Echo and Stress test to rule out any minor heart ailment. And rest other treatment should be continued as per instructions if your treating doctors.

Recovering After Heart Surgery

Recovering After Heart Surgery

Once the heart surgery is complete, the initial recovery process from the wounds and incisions can take almost two months. The doctor will give you instructions on how to take care of yourself post-surgery so you recuperate faster and be back in the pink of health.

Road to recovery

  1. The first step is to take care of the wounds; make sure that you keep the area of the incision dry. Avoid taking baths for the first few days. If you notice any sign of infection such as redness around the area, pus oozing out or high fever, then do not waste time consult a doctor. Experiencing symptoms such as the breastbone shifting and cracking when you move should not be disregarded at all.
  2. Post-surgical pain is another area that you need to address. The area adjoining the incision can be painful till the first few weeks pass and there may be pain and stiffness in the surrounding muscles as well. In case of a bypass surgery, the legs may hurt if the veins from the legs were used as grafts. The pain and the soreness will recede with time.
  3. Avoid heavy activity for the first two months post-surgery. Start with small tasks, and gradually build up your activity levels so that the body gets used to it. Avoid activities such as standing for 15 minutes or more at the same place and lifting heavy things. Make sure to consult your physiotherapist before you start with light exercises such as walking.
  4. The recovery process also depends on the type of food you eat; because eating healthy food can certainly rev up the recovery process. Initially, you may not feel like eating much, so get your appetite up in a gradual manner. It is best to avoid any junk meal at this point in time as that can adversely affect your body’s metabolism even further. It is important that you get the required amount of rest so that your body can recuperate.

My father aged 68 years has been prescribed amtas at in the morning and cresar 80 in evening. Earlier he was on cresar 80 and amlovas 5 but bp was not controlled. I just wanted to know if the combination is safe for person of his age because I have read articles about atenolol not being suitable for elderly. Pls guide. He is not asthmatic. Does atenolol have the propensity to cause cns disturbances?

Atenolol is not known to cause any major CNS disturbance. It can at times cause low heart rate in elderly but that is reversible with stopping the medicine. Still if you are so concerned regarding atenolol please discuss with your prescribing doctor about your concerns and ask the doctor for alternative substitutes, they will be able to give you some substitute. Please understand that It is difficult to remote prescribe or suggest medicines without detailed evaluation of the patient and his general conditions and investigations, so the best thing for you is to take a consultation with a general physician (M.D medicine) or cardiologist near your area.

Can echo test reveal everything about heart disease. More particularly blocks if any, holes, etc. I mean all things. That is taking only echo test sufficient to identify all heart related diseases or some more tests also to be taken. Also some diagnostic centres take an echo test within two or three minutes by applying gel. Is it correct way as I see in internet that 45 minutes will be taken for echo test. Please clarify above three points separately in detail.

Hi Lybrate User Echo is just like as USG of Abdomen. Its can't tell everyone about heart. Its tells the condition of Valves and Ejection fraction of blood by hearts and thickness of heart walls etc. For echo test need 10 to 45 minutes. For all about heart condition need echo, TMT test and Angiography etc. Take care Thanks Regards.

Heart attack may present with chest pain,shortness of breath ,palpitations, profuse sweating or feeling of impending doom...urgent refferal to a hospital is required if such symptoms appear....in a cement factory, the least u can do is,...drink plenty of fluids,water ,daily to avoid dehydration,, as dehydration also precipitates heart attacks

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Dear, What I am getting from your question that you r having pain 24 hrs a day, because without breathe we can't assume life. Sometimes it may be musculoskeletal pain. Sometimes we take normal sensation as a pain, if we r nervous or anxious about it. I think you should correct your sleeping, sitting or driving habits. Exercise may help you. If still pain persist, you should be investigated.
