Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
I want to thank you for your response. My husband has a healthy heart but he has artery disease. He had a quadruple bypass 4 years ago but the doctors are saying that with the way it was done, it is impossible to go in and fix it again. I know you cannot ethically give advice persay, butplease understand that we lost our little boy to a drunk driver, and I am not about to sit around and just accept this diagnosis and lose my husband too. They just told us to get our affairs in order, prepare our chilsren and then left him. I just feel that they should monitor him or try and help him. He is 43 years old. This does not seem right. In an era where they can medically do so much, they cannot fix this? It does help his symptoms to wear the patch, but it has to be round the clock or he crashes. Thank you again for your help and input. please accept my apology for any harshness. I mean no disrespect. I just am not ready to accept this.
