Customer Question
I am a Cardiac...

I am a Cardiac Patient w/two ablations last year at the Miami Cardiac Institute, and diagnosed with sudden myocardiac death syndrome! Within the last 2 weeks my right leg swelling has increased, since I have been diagnosed w/Lymphedema upon my return from a 6 year tour in Afghanistan! I have a lymphedema pump from my vascular doctor, but also just transferred employment from Virginia to Nuevo Laredo! Should I be concerned? since my next appt is not until Nov? or should I try to go sooner??

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

The swelling is completely gone in the night when I awake in the morning from removing the pump, but as soon as I start moving around? it begins to increase swelling!

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No more than the heart diagnosis and the lymphedema!
