I am sorry you are experiencing a long list of illnesses. I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t end up with multiple problems when they end up with the cardiologist. I had high BP, high Cholesterol, diverticulitis, prediabetic, I am also a Stage 4 cancer survivor and had a thoracotomy at Mayo in 2010 and did a 30 month clinical trial-considering I was given 6 months to live in 2009 I am one happy camper!.The day my oncologist said he thinks I may have beat cancer he also said he believed I was in heart failure and go to Mayo of Cleveland Clinic within the month or I might not live to tell the story. I recently had a myectomy on my heart -I was dx’ed with Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) and also had aortic stenosis most likely caused by radiation I had. I have a lot of little stuff going on as well, like kidney function going down etc. I am just thankful to be alive. I don’t think anyone really understands the scope of things others go through until they experience it themselves. People can’t take enough pain meds at time to relieve their pain…so we end up grumpy . I think sometimes that is what puts some people off. Lynn
