So I went to the Hospital today for my post op visit
I am so very grateful to be able to write this post today.
I had my CRT-D inserted on Feb 26, after being diagnosed last november with serious heart failure (cardiomyopathy - enlarged heart, left block, acute lung edema, EF at 15%, not very good...
In January, my EF went up to 27, so the medication didnt do the job, so I got a CRT-D. The operation went well, no pb healing.
The one thing I had a hard time handling, was the fact that for over 3 months, I had no information what so ever. But, at last !! Today I had my echo, EP and cardiologist appointement.
Echo revealed my EF went up to 42% - I could have danced !!
Than, I went to the EP; He gave me all the explainations I wanted to ask him. And so now I know at last, that I am 100% paced in both venticulars. He tried different settings in order to try and use less energy so my device will last longer. I was thinking of Asully at that moment, because some of these settings paced so hard that I had parts of my body moving. (Asully, if you read this, I can understand a little part of what you are going thru ).
Than my cardiologist. She was very happy with the results, and she accepted to :
- stop the atorvastatin - I was so unhappy with this med, I have no cholesterol issues, they said, "better safe than sorry". But I did have acute hepatitus, and I know what this molecule does to your liver. Yeah !!
- reduce Bisoprolol, furosemide and potassium Yeah again !!
I just wanted to share with you guys. You might be the only ones who understand trully.
Thank you all for reading me, and being here.
