Topic: aortic stenosis
During the process of radiation and oral chemo (xeloda) my blood pressure
was low and I did not require the usual blood pressure med taken for 20 yrs. I had an echocardiogram prior to the whipple for a cardiac clearance for surgery and no evidence of aortic stenosis was revealed. Now 17 weeks post op a 2nd echo reveals aortic valve stenosis.
I have no symptoms of cardiac insufficiency at present and will discuss this further with the onocologist next week.
Regards and my best to everyone!
