Has anyone else replied 'yes' to the 'Are you short of breath as a result of your condition'.... only to find that you are listed as 'impaired contractility'...
i am post op (February) mitral valve repair so still have moments where i am short of breath. I am getting fitter everyday ! but to be truthful to the question the algorithms do not allow for post successful op breathlessness.
I was unable to explain and get an intelligent response from 3 recommended insurance companies. All 3 gave me differences of £100 to £295 for a yes or no response.
cardio nurse, cardio rehab, anesthetist & GP all say 'no' but insurance person says 'yes'
