Well, it's still fairly early days but nine days since the diagnosis and daily beta blockers I feel a bit perkier. The symptom of feeling more tired is still there, but otherwise my breathing is better and so I'm not feeling so anxious. I can't walk as fast as before and the hills are a bummer, but I can at least walk for an hour or so on the flat.
This week we're looking after stepson's little dog while he's on holiday. Stella is a very well behaved West Highland Terrier and we've just had a very nice walk around the park. Tomorrow we're taking her for a longer romp at Stourhead Estate.
So far no weight gain, but I've set my calorie level to Maintenance /Low Activity , which for me is 1470 a day. Will see how things go.
