Congestive Heart Failure

It's very serious. Your heart isn't working properly so neither are your kidneys.
DON'T wait go to ER.

A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Any One Out There On Metroplol Succinate Extended Release For A-fib
A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member asked a question 💭

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. I'm on lasix 20 mg once a day, bit find it hard to know when I can take it because I drive bus for 9.5 hrs a day. Don't know if I'll be able to have potty break when the urge hits, so don't take it as often as supposed to.
Any thoughts
