A 51-year-old male asked:
Keep it up: As a surgeon it is hard for me to tell you if this is a typical result but you should be very proud of your accomplishment. To go from ef 20% to 50% means your heart function is markedly improved. Whoever did your echo, is the doctor you should talk to. Ultimately your lifestyle changes have been very helpful to your long term survival.
A 48-year-old female asked:
Second opinion: You certainly would benefit from seeing a vascular surgeon and especially one that has special interest in venous diseases. Please understand that there is no such thing as 100% cure for certain conditions, including venous ablation.
A 45-year-old member asked:
Hang in there: Remember you are not on a diet, you are changing your lifestyle and how you eat. It is perfectly normal for you to eat foods that are not healthy every once in a while and definitely in moderation. Make sure you don't have an all or none approach. Just concentrate on the important life style modifications and don't forget to exercise.
