Recurrent pericarditis

Posted By Helen on January 19, 1999 at 06:13:23:







Dear Doc, I think you have forgotten to look at my question dated 1/15/99 - Pericarditis. Would you be able to go back and look at it please as I am very interested to hear your opinion on my problem. Also, I have another question. What happens if inflammatory pericarditis (not viral or bacterial) with a friction rub continues untreated or is not responding to treatment, does this cause any further or long term problems? What is a reasonable time of recovery before anything further happens. I do not know how long to expect this to go on for. Last time it was 8 weeks then surgery, with no improvement in the pericarditis. I had no fluid build up however. thank you for your patience with my questions.
