My wife had open heart surgery on August 15. We have been home since August 21. My wife is 5'4" and before surgery she weighed 124, plus or minus a couple pounds. She was released from the hospital at 122 pounds and today is down to 119. Yesterday's calory intake was about 1200, today less than 700. She says she just can't eat.
I'd be delighted to discuss this with her cardiologist, unfortunately he only comes to town two days a week and won't be coming in this week at all. It's not that I don't trust the local medicos, but they are not heart specialists.
Is this eating difficulty a common problem?
