I would be interested on anything anyone knows about cardiomyopathy. All I know is that I have an enlarged heart muscle. I know that it will never get better. But I can maintain and function. I am tired quite a bit. I have a pacemaker defibrillator. I also have diabetes which is now in control and I am off meds. I had one carpal tunnel surgery which hasn't seemed to work so far. It was done on June 21 and I am told it could take three mos to a year. Still waiting. I just had both cataracts done and am waiting on a new pair of glasses. And I have a dropped bladder. But I am still alive!
When I was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and got my pacemaker defibrillator my heart was beating at 15% ejection. Now they say oh hey it is normal. It is 20-30. I was told normal is 50. So really not sure what to believe. If that is the case then why did I need the pacemaker defibrillator? I think these are some serious questions to bounce off the pacermaker defibrillator doc at my appointment in Oct.
Curious if there are others out there with cardiomyopathy and congestive heart and what they think or feel. My memory is not as good as what it use to be either. Not sure what to think. I try to stay active and busy. I have a bit of empty nest going on here too as my son just left for college. Although I am on disability I want to talk to disability and docs and see if I can't get out of this quiet house part time anyways. I need to be out amongst the living if you get my drift. I love to help others. I have had my pacer defibrillator for three years. Thanks for listening!
You have all the other heart aliements listed what about cardiomyopathy?
