Megan, I understand why you are struggling losing your dad. I too lost my dad to a massive heart attack. He had a triple bypass, replaced his aortic heart valve & went into kidney failure. Kidney failure was at the time of the surgery & he started dialysis which was working. He had a lengthy hospital stay & inpatient rehab for several weeks. He had finally turned the corner & was doing fabulous & had some kidney function to return. He passed the day before he was to go home. Lots of issues.
You have been told by two drs you have nothing to worry about. They would not risk their license to lie to a patient. Your condition was there before you were dx’d, think about it. I urge you to stay away from Dr Google, he is never right. Mild is your key word you will not kill over dead & you are not a walking time bomb. Just understand this, had it not been for the dr trying to ease your mind you would have never known. This is why the drs have no reason to be concerned, neither should you.
