I was diagnosed with HF with a reduced ejection fraction and I am on various medications to stabilise this condition, including pills to slow my heart rate down to an acceptable level. My question is really if there is any hope of being better. I find it hard to walk far without being breathless and my back and hips kick in with pain just to make things more frustrating.
I see all sorts of posts about people with Hf riding a bike for 5 Miles a day, going running or to the gym and the like but I wonder if it only those with a ‘fixable’ condition requiring a stent or valve replacement that have hope of a near normal life. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be very grateful! I try to do around 4000 steps per day but that is really the best that I can manage. I was signed off from the cardiac clinic and the Hf nurse so I have nobody to ask for help.
