Feb 24, 2017 · Left Ventricular Assist Device LVAD: Anyone else? in Heart & Blood Health

I am a recent LVAD recipient, and I am looking for people that are in a similar position as me to chat with. I got the HeartMateIII, and I really struggled with my new life and how complicated it would be (things are different). This computer that I have to carry around really made me self-cautious and made me stay home because of my insecurity (does anyone else struggle with this?). My hospital made a recommendation to me, and I am so glad that they did. I was referred to the carewmedicalwear I tried many different ways to help me feel more confident, but this was well worth the money spent. I now feel a lot more comfortable in public and in cardiac rehab. As a LVAD patient, I thought it would be nice to share this for people that are like me and struggle. My hospital did say that they have a non-profit that is going to stock this LVAD vest in the hospital to give to the patients. So cool! Well, hope all of my other lvad friends are living life to the fullest and getting around the best we can. Stay Strong!
