... My view? The more a patient understands about their illness, the better the outcome. We aren't powerless, you know. The best way to live with a chronic illness is to learn to control it and not let it control you. It's a matter of knowing enough about it that you can work effectively as a team with your doctors. It's not taking everything they say without question. It's... (164 replies)

... I have never applied for disability, however from what I have read (from reliable sources) heart failure is less than 29% EF and compensable.

At least that is the trend, but there are states and insurance poicies that differ so... (16 replies)
... What is infarction level? (16 replies)
... There may be some misunderstanding. As an analogy it seems to me a kink would be comparable to a blocked artery. A hole in a hose would affect the output and pressure. Somewhat similar to valve regurgitation as a percentage of the blood flows back into the chamber and the decreased blood output requires the heart to work harder to meet the same blood volume demand of an...

... I had a heart attack but no blocked arteries either.I have a heart valve problem that caused my heart attack.The Dr explained it like a garden hose that got a kink in it which stopped the blood flow to that side of the heart. (16 replies)
