My husband was diagnosed with heart failure this last Christmas Eve. I dropped him off at the doctor in the morning as he was complaining of breathless. They sent him directly to hospital and the day after he was diagnosed. Due to COVID the family could not visit him in the hospital and no doctor called me or thought to informed me of his condition. The next day he was put on medication and sent home and told he had left ventricle HF with an ejection fraction of 30% - a total shock! He is 48 years old and has always been healthy. He has had regular health checks for 10 years and has complained of a high pulse to the doctors, but no notice has been taken of it. The last 5 years he has slept a lot and was always tired, however since the doctors didn’t seem to be worried I didn’t think it was anything serious. I feel so panicked and scared after his diagnosis and literally don’t know what to do. I haven’t really received a any information from his cardiologist ( we see him in 1 month) and ended up googling. How I regret that!! I have been with my husband for 27 years and he is the love of my life. I am so scared and am in tears. Does anyone have any words of encouragement? Any positive stories to share? I would so appreciate if someone has time to send me a reply.
