  2. Thank you for this information! My mom is 84, had a TAVR performed 3 weeks ago. It was done via the groin. After surgery, they gave meds to raise her b.p. b/c it was quite low (diastolic in the 70's/systolic in the high 40's.) I'm concerned that her blood pressure has been low, for the most part (at home), i.e. 80/50. After giving about 400 (additional) mg. of salt last night, this morning it went up to 120/80. Is this a reason for concern? Her dr. is on vacation for the next week and cannot find an answer. PLEASE help.

  3. Had aortic valve replaced 3 yrs ago 10/13/2016 since then health has deteriorated, have problems breathing cannot walk for any distance and in and out of hospital frequently. The heart consultants say I have pericarditis / dressler syndrome which is the thickening of the pericardium due to inflammation. I'm on 40mg of prendisone to try to get through my daily routine, is there anything more can be done for me re surgery or any other suggestions to enable me to have proper quality of life. Surely I'm not the only one like this.
    Many thanks for any suggestions
