HCM Surgery in MN in 44 days

I had to go off of Losartan with HOCM. Blood pressure too low. I did work but had to stop. I had distolic dysfunction and heart failure from this. Now all gone. My blood tests are great. You are going to be fine. Mayo has videos o what they do for septal myectomy. By the time I got done reading and researching and finding that the mayo clinic in Rochester Minnesota does 200 to 250 of these a year so they really know what they’re doing. I went in with such a positive attitude knowing that they were going to take care of me. There’s so many people in this group that have such good information so read all you can. A recliner that was suggested was a lifesaver I don’t know what I would’ve done without it because it was so hard to get in and out of a bed for the first few weeks. Again good luck I know you will be OK.

When did you have your surgery? Were you able to get out of the recliner by yourself? When you were discharged after your surgery did you stay nearby at hotel and did they have the specialized recliners or did you just sleep in regular bed? So many questions!! Oh my!!

I am so happy to read this. I just got the diagnosis after a random ECO. I still have to get appointments made and insurance is a pain. I will continue to read from this group. I am going to need everyone.
