Lots of new diagnoses
I'm a 75-year old woman, overweight, with long-term controlled HBP (using Candasartan 16mg). This spring I asked my primary care doc about a slowly increasing amount of breathlessness. To make a long story short, various tests have revealed left bundle branch blockage, heart murmur, and coronary artery disease. The cardiologist says that there is no need at this time for a stent, no urgency about the lbbb or heart murmur and he doubled the candasartan and added Crestor (20mg) and I don't need to see him for six months. That's good news, I guess! I'm still breathless and suddenly feeling older and more tired and worried about the future. Thoughts? Thanks!

I hope the best. The only advice I might give is diet and exercise, checked with your physicians, but also keeping your doctors informed. I've always exercised and noticed when I dropped my routines, with time, I'm struggling, more so after the heart attack. I've noticed this with friends too. I would suggest do what you can on your part, then let the doctors do their part. God blesd. 😇🤗
