Hi folks, I've just signed up to BHF as I don't know which way to turn at this second. I've been aware I've got an enlarged heart and high blood pressure, I'm in my late 30s, today I had an appt with a consultant cardiologist, who warmly sat me down and made me aware that I have an apparent death sentence, that I could drop dead in the next five years and might not make it much beyond that, despite a recent appt with a cardiac nurse being positive and with the nurse confirming that I'd gone from 'moderate to severe' to 'moderate' LVH.
I just wasn't aware that it was this big deal, I thought it was something that would improve and I'd just have to be careful moving forward and manage my blood pressure, now I feel like a dead man walking.
Does LVH basically mean I'm going to die at some point in the near future or is it something variable that can be managed to a degree. Any advice from other sufferers (or anyone with knowledge of it) would be gratefully received, I'm just floored right now
