Need adviceThu, 09/08/2016 - 8:42PM
I am 38 years old and I am in stage 3 of HF. Yesterday I was told that I need a transplant but I have to lose 60 pounds first. Meanwhile I need the LVAD. The doctor asked me how bad do I feel? As simple as the question was, it was difficult to answer. I have 3 children ages 16, 14, and 11. I am married to an amazing man. My hesitation is the impact on my children during my recovery and if it does not work. Does anyone have any advice?
