I have posted previously about having heart valve disease. Today I noticed some swelling above my sock top on my legs. My feet and ankles have never had swelling before that I know of. I recently saw my cardiologist for a followup echo, first visit since I got the news on the valve problems. It was reported to be "okay" which I assume meant no change. I was tried on Benazepril and Cozaar and could not tolerate as I had coughing spasms. I have been given a Pro card ia script that is away in mail order at this time. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this drug and what precautions may need to be taken. I know the cardiologist was concerned at my visit that my BP was low even after I had been walking the halls. He questioned me about what a normal BP is for me and seemed hesitant to give me this med, but indicated he wanted me on something to take the stress off my heart because of all the valve problems. I also am awaiting an MRI next week for a possible cervical nerve impingement either above or below a previous cervical fusion. Any wisdom on the *******ia, swelling? I was hoping to delay the start of this med pending the cervical MRI evaluation as I have so many drug reactions and allergies in my background. Thanks in advance for those who share your wisdom.
