A few more questions since my last post.
My MRI results confirmed acute myocarditis. I received a letter from my consultant outlining this and the damage caused to my heart. In the letter I was advised that I would receive a follow up appointment. This was 2 weeks ago. The first letter took four weeks after the MRI scan and only followed once I chased it with the consultants secretary.
My questions are, how long should we typically expect to wait for review appointments and also, should I have been referred for cardio rehab? At the moment I am in limbo. How long should I expect it to take to recover, will I make a full recovery, will I be on meds for life, when is it safe to return to a stressful job? All these questions are going round and round in my head and to be honest I am starting to get anxious and somewhat depressed.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
