Sat, Aug 29 8:09pm · Multi- valvular heart disease in Heart & Blood Health

My valve specialist, at Mayo, and I have decided to reevaluate every year. So far I do quite well. The valve surgery is a serious process I’ve been told. I take metoprolol and diltiazem for Afib and heart rate control. 🤞🏻🙏🏻

I was diagnosed with severe tricuspid regurgitation in 2015. I was, also, 64. Along with that I have HF with preserved ejection fraction and mild pulmonary hypertension and Afib. Despite all of that I feel pretty good. Noticed more tiredness and out of breath while walking. I still try to keep active. Tricuspid repair or replacement will be in my future. I highly suggest you get over to Mayo….. they are the best! Best of luck to you.

I do. My Dr. at Mayo put me on the two. So far so good.

Dec 30, 2019 · Stiff Heart - diastolic heart failure in Heart & Blood Health

Hi @tcokeefe. I am a 67 year old female who was diagnosed with diastolic heart failure 5 years ago. I know the feeling you are experiencing. I’ve been told by my cardiologist and an electrophysiologist, that the 5 year mark is not accurate. It all depends on the person. I’m hoping to see my grandchildren grow up. I try to exercise and eat
right. I am in Afib all the time now but my meds seem to be helping, at the moment. I try not to read too much on the internet but searched all I could the first year or so. Good luck to you. Wishing you a Happy, healthy New Year!!👍🏻

Hi Regina. I was diagnosed in January of 2015. I now have chronic Afib and it is being managed by medication. I still am able to walk most days and feel pretty darn good. How about you?
