Can someone who has had LVAD surgery to pump your blood tell me how you’re feeling now compared to before surgery
After surgery it is like open heart surgeries. I felt better after i woke and the tubes removed. I had energy and could breath. My first walk was painful but i was able to walk farther than i had in over a year. After the chest heals you by that time have a new normal with the dressing changes. And the medications become a normal routine the hardest part is the coumadin. Or warfren management and not to eat green vegetables or eat the same amount every day. For me it saved my life.
Ber peacock I had never heard of an lvad until I got sent to the university of minnesota. They said I needed it to live until transplant could happen. And today I'm glad I went that route. Today I'm celebrating my first year post transplant and I'm back to work and feeling great.
Check it out Dan it’s amazing what they can do with todays knowledge.
Wow ! I’m in with a group of people ! I’ve never heard of LVAD that’ll give me something to google and learn about
Thanks for your answer. That’s pretty much what I figured after already going through open heart surgery.
