    He should call his doctor for that.  Has he had a weight gain?

    Possibly allergic to medication or a combination. I never had a problem before, but developed an allergy to aspirin (!) after my CABG(4x).

    Hi Gail. Your husband maybe using his hands too much. I remember getting exhausted using my hands and arms doing chores. Even when I worship at church was hard. Try to stop lifting his arms above his head for a while. That seemed to help me. I'm not a doctor so this is advise from my own experience. I hope this can ease some of his discomfort. Hang in there! God bless.
