Hi all I have systemic sclerosis with heart and lung involvement and am doing extremely well since going into heart and lung failure in June 2011. With great support from my health team, I have now recovered from Myocarditis and my lung function has improved. Long may it continue :emoticons-yes: I now need a couple of teeth extracted and my dentist referred me to a local specialist with a view to him extracting under a general anaesthetic (complications with the size of my mouth - story of my life ha ha). However the anaesthetist has discussed with my local Cardiologist the risks of using a 'general' as I have an irregular heart rhythm and Atrial Fibrillation and they have concluded that I should not have the procedure under 'general'. So......being a brave lass I suggested they extract with a 'local' but nobody is willing to do this. I have done a little research on the web without success and wondered if anyone knows of or has experience of an oral specialist who has experience of Scleroderma patients? Thanks in anticipation.
I have recently been diagnosed with Right Bundle Branch Block. I had 24 hour ECG (Holter monitoring) a few days ago and then an echocardiogram the next day. I'm waiting to hear if they need to treat this. I've been feeling lightheaded, and my fatigue has been at it's worst recently. Has anyone else had this? Did it need treatment?
