tell me what you do to calm yourself/???
and what have you heard about how good or bad they are for your heart?? and if you still have them how many a week ?????
I find myself suddenly wanting to rush home and get back to "safety" when I am at a doctor's waiting room, a public elevator...And then I realize that although everyone in my family are wonderful helping me, I try not to need help so I don't feel like I am imposing.
I just can't seem to eat healthy. I know exactly what I should be eating and how much but it's like I don't even care. I survived a heart attack wouldn't you think that I would want to prevent another one if I could. It feels like I don't even care because I'll eat whatever I want to and it's not good. It's like pass the cheesecake in the chocolate now please
My surgeon at the Mayo clinic told me my cholesterol is hereditary and meds will keep it in check. I take my meds and eat like I did before my 5 bypass and all cholesterol is low
I had a heart bypass on 11/23/22. Physically I am doing well and making good progress. However, after 2.5 weeks I started crying for no reason and get sad. I am able to pull myself out of it but it continued to happen. The nurses just say it is normal and the goal is to have more good than sad moments. My research shows this is normal but I would like to know more - how long will this last? What steps can I do to stop it before it starts? When should I be concerned? Am I doing it too much?
I was fortunate I guess. I was not afflicted with that problem.(I'm actually surprised by it.) It's surprising to me how many were. Hugs to you all...I pray it gets better for you.
Today's Monday Medical Video is about Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Life Expectancy - Google vs. Reality. One of the first questions we ask when diagnosed is, "How long will I live?" The answer to the question is a bit depressing if you Google the answer. Learn the reality of the situation and put the depression to rest in this information episode about the reality of life expectancy with CHF. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibvnSv10nU4&...
