What wonderful news. So pleased for you.
Well done you and your cardiac team!
Well done!! It’s really good to hear positive news. What do you put your recovery down to. Have you had a regular exercise regime. Have you just rested, let us know your secret!! Well done great to hear. Like you I have been diagnosed with severe LVSD with and EF of between 15-20%
Thank you , to be honest I’ve not really changed my outlook on life I still do all the things I used to but try to go for a 45 min walk about 3-4 times a week. Hopefully things will improve for you very soon
Hi Ashchar78, thanks for reply gives hope to us all. I personally have found it difficult mentally and have had a few anxiety attacks which definitely do not help at all. I’m just getting used to what I have, I overdid the exercise regime to start with which didn’t help at all. Now following the heart teams regime of excersises short walks 4 times a week. Spoken to someone about my anxiety and that has helped me tremendously. Also this forum and posts like yours really help. Your right try and keep your life as near to normal as you can and make sure you listen to the professionals. Thanks for your post and reply.👍
Wonderful news, Thank God....
Kind and warmest regards
