LVAD education/testing day and prognosis.Tue, 01/12/2021 - 10:59PM
Today was my education day with my LVAD coordinator, Social worker, pharmist and finance. Of course at this point I am overwhelmed with all the information and such that I got today. My LVAD surgeon will meet with his team next Tuesday to discuss my case, but according to him there is no other choice if I want to live much longer. My heart failure has gotten really bad and the LVAD is my only choice. Transplant is out of the question, so this would be a Destination Therepy surgery. Any words of wisdom, comments, suggestions on how to prepare for what is about to happen, would be greatly appreciated!
