post-partum cardiomyopathy

Posted By juliah on April 02, 1999 at 22:45:28:







I am 10 months postpartum and have been having trouble with shortness of breath and chest pain since I was about 8 months pregnant. I have MVP and the cardiologist indicated to me today that he believes I have postpartum cardiomyopathy. He did not put me on any medication and told me to return in 6 months. I am concerned and am wondering if I should get a second opinion. I was also told by a pulmonologist recently that I have mild restrictive lung disease. Are these 2 conditions related? Will I be able to carry a pregnancy to term without complications in the future? Should I be on medication? Thank you, Julie
