please help us/me.....my husband is only 51 and developed a cough and wheezing and when they xrayed his chest they could hardly see the heart for all the calcium. after seeing a cardiologist 10 days ago they say he has constrictive pericarditis and needs a pericardiectomy. his cath showed a healthy strong heart (at least as far as they can tell) with no blockages at all. he is physcially fit and not at all overweight but..........I AM SCARED TO DEATH. has anyone had this surgery? we saw dr. sina moainie in indianapolis and he has done 12-15 of these surgeries. anyone?
