I've never had a problem using viagra (sildenafil) and have had bypass surgery, recently I had to have a Stent after 15 yrs of heart surgery. Can I still take viagra (sildenafil)?

I've never had a problem using viagra (sildenafil) and have had bypass surgery, recently I had to have a Stent after 15 yrs of heart surgery. Can I still take viagra (sildenafil)?

Viagra (sildenafil) and stent: This question needs to be asked of your doctor/cardiologist who knows you, your condition and your medications. If you are taking nitrates as part of your medications then you can't use the viagra (sildenafil) type drugs. Ask your Doc to explain all this to you.

Will I be able to talk to the perfusionist before my open heart surgery. I have a lot of questions about cognitive problems from bypass machine.?

Will I be able to talk to the perfusionist before my open heart surgery. I have a lot of questions about cognitive problems from bypass machine.?

Possibly: Your surgeon should also be able to address these questions, as they are certainly well-versed in the complications related to bypass, and also what sort of bypass will be needed for your case. On the other hand, I'm certain most centers could easily arrange for you to spam with the perfusionist...

Are this many complications common after open heart surgery? My dad, 69 years old--overweight but no other health problems other than heart. 11 days ago had triple bypass, aortic valve replacement, and block for afib. Two hours after surgery needed anot

I: I am so sorry that your dad and your family are having to go through this. As you know, that is an extremely major surgery. Triple bypass with aortic valve replacement and procedure for atrial fibrillation is extremely extensive surgery. Factors that can affect the surgery and outcome include the condition of the patient prior to surgery, age, kidney function prior to surgery, and the condition of the heart prior to surgery. Keep an open line of communication with the doctor and nursing staff so that your family's questions can be answered to your satisfaction. I wish the best for your father.

Overall it takes a month or two before you feel fully recovered.
