My story, middle of last year I found myself admitted to hospital. My symptoms were chesty cough, rapid pulse, blood pressure was high additionally had fluid on my lungs. While in hospital had angiogram done with number blood test which then was told I have cardiomyopathy and my heart function is 15-20% on LV this at the time scared the pants off me I thought my life is over!
1 Year on i am back at work full time which I think is positive thing as help me stay focused on something other my condition which is good in one way but I think old habits of not exercising and not making sensible food choices are holding me back again the weight has crept back on, also have noticed fluid retention on my legs again so I contacted my heart failure nurse she is amazing by the way. So am now back on the frusimide to get rid of the fluid hopefully. Just very scary time at the moment !!! Think I tried to ignore that it even happened tried to live to how I was before.
