  • Issues after septal myectomy

    My husband had his septal myectomy on April 2, 2018 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. His recovery has gone very well. Recently, the past 3 months, he has been getting dizzy, extremely dizzy. Three times he has gotten dizzy, lost balance, and had memory issues. It has been so bad that his employer had to call me. We've seen his GP, his cardiologist and they've run tests on his brain and brain stem. So far nothing has shown up, which is good, but these episodes are becoming more frequent. Has anyone else experienced anything like this after surgery?

    I had the same thing happen to me twice after the procedure. The first time I was in the shower the week after surgery and I got so dizzy I had to grab hold of the door handle. It passed in a minute or two. The second time as I was walking in a park a month after surgery and I almost fell down. I had to have my wife help steady me.

    That was it. Just those two times. They couldn't find anything wrong and it never happened again after that. It is very scary though and at first I thought I was having a stroke. Wish I could provide answers but I don't have any. Posted just to let you know that it does happen and your husband is not unique. Hope he finds or has found the answer.
