annual check up/ a mild case of covid
Saw my ep today. Good news is the 26 year old lead is still not showing any signs of a problem. I didn't get the EF number but he looked at the echo and said it was perfect and I had the heart of an 18 year old. I was shocked to learn I still have 8-10 years on this battery. It's already 5 years old, and before this I've never had one make it past 7 so WOW.
Bad news is he agrees with my gp that I likely had covid back in March and that it's done some damage. I feel fine doing day to day things and can walk but am still unable to run or work out all these months later. We ruled out heart so next we will check pulmonary function. AND I AM NOT ALLOWED TO WORK OUT UNTIL THEN. Yes, I'm whining. Possibly pouty.
Moral of the story, don't think a mild case of covid is no big deal. I was never even sick enough to take a tylenol. I was already staying home when everyone still thought hand sanitizer was going to fix this but I still managed to get it. Be diligent.
