Need a little advice about my dadMon, 03/29/2021 - 9:09AM
My dad had an Lvad implanted exactly 6 weeks ago today, However the doctors are saying his right side simply is not doing its job, and being that he has been in the hospital so long he is not strong enough to be considered for an Rvad surgery making it a Bivad.
Due to his age AND undiagnosed spot on his lung he can not be considered for a transplant.
So we as the family were thinking allow him to go to rehab and get stronger since hes been in bed for a total now of 9 weeks, then see if he can have the Rvad implanted.
Anyone have any experience with something like this and can shed any light? I feel like the doctors are in a way giving up
