After an echogram and a stress test, I am going to have a angioplasmy done tomorrow.  I was wondering about physical activity post the process.  I am wondering if going out to dinner over the weekend is possible, or should I cancel.  Of course, I am assuming they do not have to insert a stent or something more severe.  The nurses and techs make it sound like a walk in the park.  LOL

Hello,
 
Before leaving the hospital after an angioplasty, patients receive instructions regarding when and to what extent they can resume normal activity. Heavy lifting and vigorous activity should be avoided for several days to ensure that arteries heal properly. Other recommendations depend on the success of the procedure and whether there are other blockages.
 
Kiindly,

Hi

Had a stent done April 26. Only had to be careful not to lift over 10 pounds for a short time. Other than that everything was as normal as could be expected. Feel great now. Back to work July 1.

Had the tests done. Doctor thinks the "pressure" in my chest is due to excess fluid build up in the heart sac. He put me on 40 mg of Lasix per day. It has helped some, but dos any on have some thoughts on what causes this. I do not have a chronic problem with fluid retention in general. I am on a blood pressure med that contains 25 mg of dieuric already. Have an appointment with doctor in a couple weeks. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
