Wed, Mar 6 11:37am · HCM-ers: Introduce yourself or just say hi in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

I also wondered because my husband waited 4 weeks but looking at the schedule we received I realized why. Numerous appointment scheduled over 4 days when they are dealing with 4 different departments and several hundred more patients it all made sense. So don’t give up, everything will work out well with appointments for you

I’m impressed, my husband lost weight post surgery about 8lbs. We’ve always (tried hard) to eat a healthy diet and exercise which, I believe, made an enormous difference in his recovery. As far as heart rate of 130 the defibrillator would go off lol but we walk 3 miles per day and keep very active generally.
I’m also a little biased because our daughter is a nurse at Mayo Jacksonville

The best thing you will ever do for yourself would be a second opinion and if you can get to Mayo Rochester the HCM program is awesome. My husband had septal myectomy last October after being diagnosed with HCM 30 years ago. We live near San Diego and had great care from the cardiologist but when the HCM became obstructive the cardiologist recommended Mayo because of their expertise.

Thinking about you today and positive thoughts for your surgery

My husband chose Mayo Rochester because they perform more surgeries than any of our hospitals in Southern California and have a fantastic HCM program, so maybe it’s worth going for a consultation and possible surgery.
