so what is the prognosis? can they do anything else? my husband has cardiomypathy,and a defibrillator. he has been sick for quite awhile. first came the heart attack at age 25,then a blood clot,then a defibrillator,it malfunctioned,and then another one. he is now 44. unfortunately, he is in heart failure and his doctor has gone as far as he can go.,except transplant. that would take place in nashville,which we live outside knoxville. he also has copd.
the point i am trying to make is the doctors gave him up to around 5 years in 1991. try and concentrate on how much life you have now,and take one day at a time.
tomorrow we go and see his family doctor because his legs are swollen and the lasix for his fluid is not doing the job.
i still hope and pray,for being a christian is the only way to get through it,and the support of your family and friends.
i will pray for you,all hope is not lost.
