I don't know if my EF has gotten any better but I certainly feel great exercising!

Walk. Every day. At least A mile. In the beginning, I would huff and puff. Even when I lost my breath, I would sit until it returned, then go on. I had been stuck in a bed for months, so when I got up, I refused to go back. If I had to, I sat in a tall chair/ bar stool. And I went low fat/ low sugar/ high fiber. Added fruit, green tea, sparkling water, and switched to half caff. Had Cardiologist tell me to ignore primary care, as primary care said to rest, and not tax my heart, keep pulse rate below 70.

I can not decide if I believe in Echos. Everytime I have one it is differend(#) 10 years ago I had and episode??? and after a few years my Cardio suggest a Pace maker. Then 2 years later I needed to have a CAD. My echos are from 13% to 55%. Last one in June 2021 was 30 and he changed all my meds. It worries me every time I have to have one because the last one scared the Dr. I sometime wonder if they are often misread.

Last year my EF showed 33 with the ECHO. Just had another ECHO and it said my EF was 60.

Never has happened to me, but I hope it goes that high in Sept when I have my next Echo.
