sneezing, runny nose,cough - after heart attack and major bypass surgery
Hi! hope u all are doing well.
my question actually pertains to my dad's heart condition. he had a mild heart attack almost 11 years ago and had a major bypass a year and a half ago. After the bypass surgery he has developed a consistent cold. his nose is constantly running which he blows out quite rigorously (and recently it has started to bleed as well); violent sneezes (he always had them but now they occur more often) and coughs (though coughs are not as consistent - you do hear him coughing once every hour without any mucus)
my question is that is it something we should b worried about? the heart specialists back home told us that it's nothing, however i dont know how much i trust them. could it be because of the medications he is taking after bypass? and wht about CHF? do you think he could have that as well?? could you pls reply back to my questions?
thank you SO very much for your time and help!!!!!!!!
