I'm hoping someone can confirm the information I've been given this week.
Fatigue is NOT a sign of congestive heart failure and signifies only personal weakness in the form of laziness — right?
When a person with HF feels tired, the correct action to take is not rest, but more work — right?
There is absolutely no reason why six to eight hours of fast-paced, non-stop work should trigger fatigue in an HF patient — right?
There is absolutely no reason why an HF patient should feel fatigue after an 18-hour day filled with fast-paced work, followed by a sit-down volunteer job — right?
An HF patient should recover from these rigors just as fast as a person with a perfectly healthy heart — right?
And even if such work causes fatigue, the answer is to do still more work — right?
A stent is a 100 percent cure for HF — right?
There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for a person with two stents to take any heart medications since the stent represents a 100 percent cure — right?
Thanks for any confirmation you can give me!
