Welcome on HCM!

Regarding your concern, I would like to explain that you can safely take a flight in two days after an uncomplicated angiography, especially if the reason bringing to the angiography recommendation was not an acute coronary syndrome (acute myocardial infarction).

My mother started on coreg over 2months now and was having problems with being tired in her chest then she wasn t thinking very well. Had to be put in the hospital and her dosage of coreg was upped she then started seeing snakes on the walls and just about has lost it. She still knows me but can t concentrate well enough to carry on a real conversation. She will start with silly rhyming and things like that. She went from hospital to rehab and last weekend she started passinf==g blood in her stool earlier this week she started passing some red blood in her urin and last night started passing blood clots in her urine . Her family dr. will not take her off og the coreg unless her heart dr. says its ok. I really think this stuff has done a jobe on my mother and they don t want to believe me.

Hi, I am 44years old. Seven years ago I suffered an acute myocardial infarction . There was 15% damage to my heart muscle and I have a stent put in. I am currently experiencing discomfort (like someone pressing on mu chest with their hand .) My mother passed away to heart disease at 46years of age. Her brothers passed away in their 50 s. What kind of life expectancy should I expect. Please be honest.
