    I started taking Adempas and Opsumit in August and had a lot of side effects. I also take Coumadin. Long story short – in November I had titrated up to 2.5 Adempas but also started to feel very bad. November and December were disasters – I couldn’t breathe even with O2, I had such stomach upset I was eating very little. Then on 12/27 I passed out and had other emergency signs and went to the ER. I had severe anemia, low hemoglobin and had lost two units of blood NOTE: I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS WAS RELATED TO MY MEDICATIONS, but it has set me back to a year ago. I failed my 6 minute walk two weeks ago, and my pulmonary hypertension has increased 8 points. Anyway, I’ve decided to go to UC/San Diego for the balloon angioplasty and am wondering if anyone else has been there for treatment and 2) anyone else has had BPA treatment – did it work? How difficult was it? Many thanks for any input.

    • Hi Marsha,

      I am sorry that you are seeing decrease in your functions. I know it’s hard to see the numbers go up (which isn’t always a good thing for us). It is good that you are now going to another hospital to get this procedure done. I am sure others in the group have experience with this. I will create a forum topic and tag you in it so that you can see the replies from others here. The topic will be “Balloon Angioplasty for treatment” and I will copy your message to it so that you can see responses. I hope others will be able to help!
