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!

LOL, WRONG! Didn't take long to to taste the sarcasm in your litany. Of course all those things are BS and if they are being uttered by a doctor they should be run out of town.

This is especially true of stenting. Stents are an emergency procedure to keep you alive after a heart attack they ABSOLUTELY DO NOT address the cause of the heart attack. What is unconscionable are ruthless, money grubbing docs who are only happy to stent you every couple of years while doing nothing to cure your heart disease and, yes, many forms ARE curable. By "curable" I don't mean like an infection (where you take a pill and you are done) as you will likely need lifetime treatment but I do mean that you can stop heart disease in its tracks with optimal treatment - not always - but often, once you know the root cause!

I'm not sure if you and I are medically speaking the same. Is that a joke cause for me I am laughing at that opinion! Not sure if I'm helping or am the correct person for you to speak to.
