Hi coraleeanne,  I just wanted to welcome you to healing well forum. This is a great place to come if you have questions or need support.

I dont know all that much about Pericarditis so I cant be of much help.  However,  I am sure that someone will come along shortly and answer your question.  Take care and I hope to see from you again....

Hi coraleeanne

I am nearly 6 months post-op for calcified chronic constrictive pericarditis, & doing fine.
My symptoms initially led me me to be labeled as suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
The constrictive pericarditis was causing swelling of my GI tract leading to nausea & some mild pain in the upper abdomen.
GI symptoms are common in chronic pericarditis.
There is an extensive Pericarditis & Pericardiectomy forum which is worth a look.
