I'm a caregiver for my partner who got an LVAD a month ago...we're in our early 30s. He was in the hospital for 6+ weeks on the transplant list, then his condition deteriorated and he needed the LVAD. We are very thankful that he does feel so much better than before....but he is often still fatigued and the pain is a lot more than I thought it would be a month out. Did others similarly experience a lot of fatigue and pain in recovery?
I've been reading this site for the whole month, and it has definitely helped prepare me for all of this. Thanks to all of you who have shared.
