shortness of breath after heart bypass operation
On 01/25/11...6 weeks ago had a 5 artery bypass. Ever since then I can not breathe right. No improvement. Drained fluid from around my right hand lung 4 times. After fluid is drained still no relief...can't breathe right. A simple slow walk gets me gasping for air. It's called plurel effusion. They want to operate on me and put some adhesive on my lung to glue my lung surface to the outer liner so the fluid stops. In hospital for another week, general anesticia, tubes in me and a new recovery time for second operation. I feel I am being mis-diagnosed. If this fluid was the cause of my shortness of breath ..then why did my breathing not improve when they drained the fluid? I think something else is wrong.What should I do.

I don’t think so you were miss diagnosed, what they did was important , but maybe your EF is low and this is why you feel still shortness of breath?
Definitely call your doctor and tell what is going on with you !!
