Nov 9, 2018 · What is the recovery like following septal myectomy? in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

Thank you for telling me it was a non-event for you. I have been so afraid of it. I'm trying so hard to be positive. I have 4 kids and a husband who need me. And I'm only 40…..it's just all of the what ifs.

I'm afraid of the surgery. I'm trying not to be. I know that I will be in the best hands. I just don't want to end up being the bad side of the statistic.

I am scheduled for surgery on January 31, 2019. I'm so nervous about it! Can anyone tell me if there are things I can do ahead of time to make the recovery any easier? Also, do you remember waking up on the ventilator? I'm already having nightmares about it. Everyone here seems so positive and helpful. I am terrified. Thank you in advance for any tips and information.
