I had open heart surgery 10/97 - and I had a mitral valve replaced with a prothetic valve. In November 98, I had the RNY Gastric Surgery, I ended up having complication after complication and was unconscious for 65 days, and in the hospital for 9 months. I ended up with muscle atrophy - and I had to learn to walk again, my blood pressure was very low during my recovery and caused a lot of problems for me. I finally got out of the hospital July 99, and started walking again last October. I have some nerve damage still in my feet, and I'm on B12 shots for that.
I have been having these attachs ever since I had stomach stapling - which was back in Nov 98. I thought what I was experiencing was "dumping" - now I find out that it's vaso vagel. When I first start feeling ill, my nose starts to run, then my heart starts racing very very fast, and then I start to feel clammy and I have to lie down, after about 15 minutes I feel OK.
Is this something that I should worry about - if so, should I go back to my Cardiologist and have some tests?
