Diagnosed with HOCM last year. May be time for surgery
Hello, I was diagnosed with HOCM last year. I have been told I may be approaching the time for surgery. The last MRI showed a 10% worsening in valve pressure. I am in the process of getting a second opinion. I have pain and dizziness and breathing is hard. I am scared. I worry if I have to have surgery something will happen. I know I shouldn’t but I do. I’ve had problems with my heart since I was a kid I am 54 now. I feel alone with this problem. I put on a brave face for my husband and kids but alone I almost feel defeated. I wonder if there is anybody out there that had this heart disease and if so are they ok and how did it go? Thank you all for reading this and I hope everyone who is sick to get well soon.
