Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have by-pass surgery done. I am having respiratory problems and broncho asthma. I have swelling of body parts like face, feet, and legs.

Answered by Dr. Amit Jauhari

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com. Your respiratory issue could be due to chest infection. Kindly answer the following questions for a better understanding of your health issue. What is your blood pressure (BP) status? Is there any cough and sputum or fever? Do you feel breathless on walking or even while sitting or lying? Has the swelling appeared suddenly or was it always present? Is there any other issue like burning in urine, etc? Please reply in detail, so that a preliminary diagnosis can be reached.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

My blood pressure (BP) is normal 120/80 mmHg and also pulmonary test is 45. My echo was done before four months was normal. No cough and fever. Breathless while walking, even changing positions at night while sleeping or even while having food. Swelling is always present in legs since three months. No issue like burning in urine. Waiting for soonest response.

Answered by Dr. Amit Jauhari

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com. Your health issue is because of both lungs and heart issues. For lungs, I will recommend inhaler Combihale FB 400 or Budamate 400 (use with spacer) one puff three times a day (early morning, 2 PM and at 8 PM). For cardiac issues, please consult with your present cardiologist, maybe some dose adjustments are needed. Use the inhaler for five days and always rinse your mouth and throat with normal plain water afterward. Do consult after five days for further advice.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
