Second opinion] what happens when the cells in your heart go up

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

My husband has a bad heart, he was put in the hospital last night. & today, the dr said the cells in his heart will have to go down before he would let my husband come, but he didn't say why they went up

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

His mother passed away from a heart attack, but she was the only person in his family that had one

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

his doctor may have been talking about results of his blood tests

if his red blood cell count levels are too low or if platelet cell counts are too low, then surgery or procedures can not be performed on the heart.

you should ask his doctor for copies of his blood testing results. I would be happy to review them with you

let me know if you have questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
