Thu, Aug 1 10:29am · HCM-ers: Introduce yourself or just say hi in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

My husband is one year out and I can’t tell you how great he is doing. Wants to go zip lining to celebrate. Both doctors and staff at Mayo are the best. We live in NJ next to NYC which has great hospitals, but you can’t get the care as at Mayo.

This is a question that may sound silly. My husband had HOCM and five blockages last year. Saturday August 3rd is his one year anniversary after surgery. He wants or celebrate by going on a short zip line , is it’s safe?
Also a note to those going thru this now, it’s amazing the difference a year makes. Can not say enough about Mayo Clinic and the staff. They are the Bentley of hospitals.

Mon, Jun 3 2:30pm · Freaking out a bit - Upcoming surgery! in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

My husband had HOCM and five blockages. He had his surgery nine months ago today, and I can’t begin to tell you the difference. The first two months he felt very little difference and questioned everything he went thru. Now, he would do it again knowing how great he feels. A year ago he was exhausted just coming in from the driveway. Mayo is the best for this condition, surgery. The staff is so fabulous I can’t rave enough about them. Get it done and move on with life.

I agree, the nurses at Mayo are the best. I wish nurses everywhere could be trained as the ones at Mayo. They truly put their heart into their work.

Question, my husbands surgery was on August 3rd, left Mayo on August 10. Approx two weeks later he started with a dry cough. His local cardiologist gave him some pills for the cough that help, but still bad. Wondering if anyone else had this?
