To get an lvad or not to get an lvad, that is the questionWed, 08/15/2018 - 10:23AM
Two years ago my husband who suffers from congestive heart failure was tested to be put on a heart transplant list. He was deemed to healthy. Now we are facing the same testing. I can live with the thought of him receiving a heart transplant. He feels fine right now. No shortness of breath, he golfs once a week. He looks and says he feels fine. The medical facility that he goes to is really pushing having the lvad. I don't believe my husband has done any research but I have done plenty. I am scared to death. He also has a pacemaker and his electrophysiologist says he does not need an lvad. What truly are the symptoms that constitute the need for an lvad. I am not getting any black and white answers.
