Dec 3, 2019 · No improvement with pacemaker in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Penn1023, I think it's from getting older and not walking much because of SOB.

Penn1023, I have painful legs so my walking is extremely limited. Some days I don't walk at all. How important is walking?

Thank you, Yoanne. I'll look into that medicine asap.

Mary, Thanks very much. I'm not consistent, but it may help aiming for that. It's good to know that I can walk slowly and it will be good for me.

Thanks, Colleen, I can do very light physical activity, but then I get short of breath. This doesn't seem right after all this time.

Hello everyone, I had a pacemaker implanted on Oct. 9. I have congestive heart failure with an EF of 20. Since the procedure, I haven’t noticed any improvement with my shortness of breath and fatigue. My cardiologist says it will take time (I had two blood clots after the procedure) but everything I’ve researched says I should be feeling much better by now. Do any of you have experience with pacemakers? Thanks.

Jul 9, 2019 · My Dr wants to switch me to a new medication - Entresto in Heart & Blood Health

Hello again, everyone,

After taking Entresto for 6 months, I just had another ECHO, which showed that my EF of 20 went down to 18. I also have no improvement in symptoms. I told my cardiologist I wanted to go off Entresto, but he insisted I stay on it. He said I might feel worse if I go off it.
Does anyone have any experience with this drug?
Thanks.

Thanks, Kanaaz. I'm still researching. The idea of having this done scares me, but I'm not doing well this way, so. . . .
