Is your husband's blood pressure (BP) low?
Do you have an at home BP monitor? I ask because,
I have had dizziness in the past myself from low BP,
medications (med.'s) can cause this...If the BP gets
too low, then his Dr.'s need to be aware of this so
they can monitor his med.'s closer - perhaps just
putting him on lower doses. He may need time to
adjust to the med.'s. I don't know the answers,
but I think the first step would be to call his Dr.
about this and then keep an eye on his BP, so it
does not fall too low. Tell him he's not alone,
and he's welcome to join us, too!!
Well, that certainly makes sense that they put
the 10 lb. weight limit on him!
I found a couple of sites for you and your husband
to look at that will provide more info so that you
both understand what is going on and are able to
speak to his Dr. with more knowledge of the situation.
Trust me, it does help to be part of the health team!!http://www.clevelandclinic.org/heartcenter/pub/guide/disease/cad/cad_arteries.htm
I hope this helps, Kristin!! I also know how hard this
is on you - I've been through this with both of my
parents, and I've watched my own husband have
to deal with this...so remember to take care of You!
Best Wishes and Hugs, Teri
