Hi all - I have had a recent diagnosis of heart disease (from genetic FH), and have an appointment in a month to get a stent fitted.
Two weeks ago I caught a bad cold, started with sore throat, lost my voice and been very chesty with it. Basically I have been finding it really difficult to shift... Definitely on the mend but really slow progress.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Does heart disease lower our immunity or slow down the healing process?
Anyone got any tips to aid recovery?
I have two small kids and so there are lots of bugs from nursery & school around so wondering if I should be extra careful. Also now pretty frustrated as just want my energy to return!
