I had a heart attack on Feb, 14th 2011 ( Yeah I know irony heart day :) ) anyway for probably about 5 years before my right ankle would swell especially when I sat too long or on long car trips, I also had constant facial edema.. I had been to the Doc several times for it with a DX Of fluid retention don't use salt ( I hate salt never salt food!! ) After the stent and being put on meds have never had Edema since everyone comments how good I look.
I was wondering if anyone else noticed a change in fluid retention after stent? I have not been diagnosed with CHF and I would think after 7 years of Edema it would of progressed further. My EF was 55 to 60 on my last nuclear scan.
