Customer Question
I have had aortic...

I have had aortic graph installed due to aneurism’s, I’m on blood pressure medicine and blood thinners. Suppose to take cholesterol meds but the statins make me ill. Currently wondering I get a red mark between my eye brows couple times every six months. Is it something that will be a problem

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

No family heart issues, I had my valve replaced 20 years ago I am now 40 and the abdominal aortic aneurism 3 years ago, not the greatest feeling since this last surgery, went Afib once for over 24 hrs.

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

Lots of digestion issues. And upset stomach which I point towards blood pressure medicine which also makes muscle cramping and yeitching

I am 40 year old male, no where else on body this type of mark but do get small red blotches, I take warfarin,coversyl, metoprolol.
I get lots of ringing in ears, always feel off.
I’ve had my aortic valve replaced to mechanical and aorta graph due to abdominal aneurism
Eye Doctor: Dr. Rick, Board Certified MD replied 5 months ago

thank you for that additional information and the pictures.

While I do not believe these red marks are a problem I really can't pin down the underlying cause from the photographs you have provided alone.

So. What should you do?

1. I'd not worry about these but I'd show them to your regular doctor and see what she thinks.

2. If you are concerned then get into see a dermatologist when the red marks are present. He may want to do some specialized testing such as a full thickness biopsy.
Does this make sense to you?

I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter. And, don’t forget, I work for tips. I would also be happy to continue to answer any more questions you have until we have resolved your concern.
