    Hi I'm new to here . My father who is 71 has severe heart failure. Back in April of this year he underwent a triple heart bypass & new heart valve. After his surgery he has deteriorated steadily . Which has now left him exhausted and very poorly.

    Hi Saffron,

     

    I am very sorry to hear that your dad has been unwell; this must be a very worrying time for you and your family. You mention that your dad has deteriorated rapidly after his triple bypass, have you spoken to his doctors about his current condition?
