Do you have problems with weight gain?
Since I've been on it, I have gained about 20 pounds. Part of it I'm sure is actual weight from not exercising and not eating right.- too many calories in, and too few cal. going out. Water weight.

For my husband

For my husband

My husband was diagnosed with CHF this week, I want to prove to him that you can live with this. He's on medication and a low salt diet.
Would like to hear from people who are living with this, your stories good or bad, just so I can help him understand what is going on.
Thank you and God bless you all

Did the stent help with energy?

Did the stent help with energy?

Was there a noticeable change in the way you felt following the stent. Had a heart attack 31/2 yrs. ago. Was admitted for bypass surgery. Changed their mind after finding ' natural bypass". Blood vessels grown around the blockage. Not even a stent. I'm treated with medicine. I tire easily. Things I used to do,I don't feel like I can do it now. Was wondering if maybe a stent would help. Thanks
