"Hello, I would like to seek help on my mothers condition. In 2011 she had a quadruple bypass surgery. Surgery was successful. Despite serious blockages, she able to recover soon and get back to daily lifestyle. Fast forward to 2017, she was complaining on chest tightness and uneasiness. After multiple trips to cardiologist, they finally agreed to perform an angiogram. Angiogram revealed 2 bypasses (from 2011 surgery) that we’re not working anymore. They placed 2 stents in one of the bypasses and since the other bypass was about 40-50% they didn’t do anything to that one. They also didn’t want to spend too much time invasively.
Now more than a year later, she has been complaining for months about her nose being blocked making it hard for her to breathe. We have made visits to ENT doctors, lung specialists, cardiologists. They have found nothing wrong with her nose. Pulmonologist says she has a bit of asthma, so now she using an inhaler for about a month or so.
Her nose is still constantly and severely blocked, neck and shoulder ache from the constant congestion. She has trouble breathing because of the blocked nose. Nasal sprays, teas etc nothing work.
Would appreciate any advice! I hate to see her in pain like this :("
Hello, it is recommended that you follow up with your concerns with your providers and specialists for your mother. The best treatment would be given when your providers have the medical records, labs, diagnostic testing readily available especially since there are multiple concerns from Cardiac to ENT.
