Recovery from Heart Disease
I know my circumstances are kind of rare – I had Cardiomyopathy that was reversible, after a ventricular ablation. My heart function is good, for the first time in probably 4 years or so. I feel so much better, but feel changed. I don’t have the stamina I used to – and don’t really feel I can do a full-time job anymore. I think maybe it will take some time to regain strength and stamina after my body was working at such a diminished capacity for several years.
Anyone else out there had heart surgery that greatly increased your heart function, but found it hard or slow to regain what you’d lost? How long does it take? Any tips on how to regain overall health, or does it never quite come back again? I’m almost 59 – maybe part of this is just normal aging – I don’t quite know what to think about it.
