Congestive Heart Failure

Story image

In 2016,  I suffered Congestive Heart Failure and I didn't even know it.  It was in April 2016 that I landed in the hospital with my back and chest hurting so badly that I thought I was having a heart attack.  When the Hospitalist inform me that I had had Congestive Heart Failure, I disagree with her and told her that it was arthristis.   She chose me a very nice Cardiologist, and in September, 2016, he put a stent in.  I'm on several medication and feels a lot better.

    AHAASAKatie,
    Thank you for sharing this! I urge you to take a few minutes and start or join a conversation in our Heart Failure section. https://supportnetwork.heart.org/connect-with-people-like-me/heart/heart-failure/ I also wonder what you find to be the hardest part of managing your heart failure? Thanks Katie
