Congestive Heart Failure
It's very serious. Your heart isn't working properly so neither are your kidneys.
DON'T wait go to ER.
IT CAN BE FATAL
I am now due for my colonoscopy, my last one was five years ago, (had a small polyp) removed, since then I have developed heart issues, Dissection of an artery, CHF, (low EF), and had to have an ICD. I am afraid to be put to sleep for the procedure with the colonoscopy. Have anyone had their colonoscopy, with CHF and an ICD? Thanks.

I can not make it without God on this heart journey. Without Prayers is not an option for me.
I have congestive heart failure and fluid on my lungs. I'm using lasic meds daily to drain that fluid. I wonder what causes the fluid build up on my lungs and if I will be on lasics from now on?
