My mom has a heart problem

She has been having a ton of problems with anemia because she's been bleeding for months from uterine fibroids. Now they are giving her lupron to try to slow the bleeding. Yesterday they discovered a blockage in her heart so she can't have a hysterectomy. Now it looks like she will be having heart surgery before they can do the hysterectomy. Or angioplasty. She had a blood transfusion last week and it hasn't helped a thing. She is only 53 years old. We have fought a LOT and has a lot of problems, but I am very worried about her. She has to go to a specialty hospital before we know the extent of the heart condition, but I'm very concerned about her going through surgery like this.

How is your mothers eatting habits? Has the doctors prescribed a diet for her? Check into that too until she can get the surgeries she needs. Get her to eat tofuClick here to enlarge
