Re: Shortness of breath after heart surgeries

What are the conditions of her heart and lungs?

Does she have any enlargement or thickening of parts of her heart? Are there still arteries with some blockage? How are her heart valves? Any valve regurgitation? Any enlargement of her aorta?

Has she had a lung test? Are her lungs fully functional?

Has she been diagnosed with allergies and/or Asthma?
