Pulmonary hypertension/ any advantage to move to lower elevation?

Yes. Living above 3500 ftt while also having pulmonary HTN is problematic. The lower oxygen tensions at high altitude constrict the blood vessels in the lung and can make pulmonary htn. Definitely something to review with your doctor.
Altitude . The higher the elevation, the lower the oxygen level in the surrounding air. Low oxygen levels may cause or worsen pulmonary hypertension. You should discuss whether this is relevant to your health with your doctor before deciding to relocate.

If you have pulmonary hypertension. Is it a good idea to move to a lower altitude?

If you have low o2. The risk of higher altitude is lower oxygen in the air. This can lead to further strain and stress on the body and worsen pulmonary hypertension, especially in more advanced disease. Your doctors can check your oxygen levels to see if you are at risk for low oxygen. These levels should be checked with rest, activity and with sleep. If your saturations remain in a safe range you dont need to move. Read more...

If you are on supplemental oxygen therapy there isn't much data to suggest you do better at lower altitude.

PHTN. Pulmonary hypertension can "strain" the right heart leading to edema which is frequently treated with diuretics. An echocardiogram will show how high pulmonary pressures are & how right heart is performing. Read more...
May be. Sometimes in rehab, they are not as aggressive with diuretics. The swelling may be a sign that the phtn is worse, but it may be as simple as her diet been high on salt or increase fluid intake. I would ask the doctor to address the fluid retention... Read more...
