My dad has lived with his LVad for about 4 years successfully. In recent months he developed an infection and was treated for same in the hospital and now takes a medication to keep the infection at bay. Of course he has other medications related to his device as well. The infection was caught in June and so after a few months we notice his appetite declining and he’s very weak and fatigued. He is not a candidate or strong enough for a replacement device and another surgery. We’re wondering what else can be done or have others experienced similar situations? Thanks for any insights you can share.
