Nov 25, 2019 · What is the recovery like following septal myectomy? in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

i had my septal in March 2019 at Tufts 2 hrs from Ct where i live and my recovery went fine, they told me i needed a pacemaker but i was stubborn and didn't want it and went home and fainted two days later and had a pacemaker and a defib put in that was worse installing that hardware then the actual septal myectomy believe me when i tell you because they at Hartford Hospital didn't tell me i should elect to be knocked out. Anyway i'm 8 mths in after the surgery and feeling great and i haven't started cardio rehab and i know shame on me i just wanted to loose some weight first so i'm gonna start the rehab after the new yr but things are going great i have more energy and i don't get out of breath like i used to. I still do some but its because of the weight i still have on me and i haven't started the rehab but just be kind to yourself emotionally and physically rest for at least what they give you time to rest for and take that serious as your chest is healing and you don't want lasting complications from that. Just be kind to yourself your chest will be opened and that is a lot for your body and spirit to handle so that is my best advice to you. TAKE IT EASY AND TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST 🙂 hope that helps you.
