Have you had an echo to check for pericardititis?

Sep 21, 2018 · HCM CARE tips - What do you wish you had known for after surgery? in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

Thanks for sharing! How long are most people out of work? I recently talked to someone who said that he had to take a year off work after myomectomy. My job doesn’t require lifting but it is stressful at times and that seems to provoke problems. Lately my oxygen levels keep dropping pretty low and I’m assuming a myomectomy is up for discussion at the next visit. I’m 39 and own the business I work in. Longer leave could force me to close, but shorter leave would be stressful. I know I should wait to discuss with my doctor, but since my oxygen is dropping I feel like I need to process this as a possibility before I commit to some things. I will go back to mayo for my follow up soon. Last Mri showed I was 1 mm away from severe hypertrophy, going from non obstructive to obstructive in 1 year. Also, physical activity is really important to me. How long did it take you to be able to exercise at your full capacity?
