Оценок: 92 | Просмотров: 16122
Matt Fogg, 23, was near death when he arrived at our Heart & Vascular Center. After implanting a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) to normalize his heart function, Matt's medical team began a rehab program to thoroughly restore his heart. Matt now enjoys a healthy, independent life without the aid of a LVAD. Learn more about Brigham and Women's Heart & Vascular Center: www.brighamandwomens.org/heart

So lucky. Glad you've had a great recovery. You're far too young for such a terrible disease. My mother passed 12 years ago from CHF. I wish they'd have had the modern medicine then that we have today. I have a ICD implant pacemaker/defribrillator but my case is inherited gene causing long q/t that throws the heart into a non shockable rythym called Torre de saads. I went into cardiac arrest in the middle of the 🌙 night. I'm lucky my husband awoke to find me on our bedroom floor. Most who do go into cardiac arrest don't survive, about 8%live actually. Anyone who has survived any kind of heart anomaly is my hero. God bless you and all who you've touched with your story.

I understand from this video that Matt recovered to normal heart function and had the device removed.  Does he still take any medication?

Im hoping his recovery will be a good as yours Matt!!! He too almost died but has been recovering very well. He lost 35 pounds in five days of fluids, he couldn't hardly breath. Its amazing what doctors and nurses can do!!! Praise God!!!

My fiancee went into heart failure from afib a week ago. They used a balloon pump and removed it within 24 hours. He is off all the IV's and should be coming home tmrw. The doctors seem optomistic that his heart can recover since he didn't have heart disease prior. He was admitted to emergency room and went into shock as well. I am just so thankful his is recovering so well.

Matt, I'm glad that you found some relief from the LVAD.  Would you know if you had Systolic Heart Failure or Diastolic HF?

That is good to hear, and spectrum health here in Grand Rapids Michigan has a good heart center that has been helping me along the way up until transplant or explant and I am still hoping for the latter

I have read about heart failure online and they generally say that people can't recover to a normal heart function from heart failure.  However,  I also recovered to normal heart function.  My heart failure was not the result of heart disease and my understanding is that sometimes people can recover from that to a normal heart function. Although most of the online material I have read does not mention that in much or any detail.

Gussy, why citrus?

Layah Jhene My hubby is on a raw cruciferous berry diet! Citrus daily, like lemons& limes. He can't have oranges right now as it raises his BS. Maybe down the road of recovery!
