Hello and thanks for writing in
We can not change the destiny but can change the quality of life so that you have not to fight for every breath. As per AWMI is concern your block in the coronaries has to be opened as soon as possible so that your heart can not be damaged. Post surgery life is as good as before but you have to take the medications properly and follow certain life style changes:
1. Do regular exercise for about 30-45 minutes per day.
2. Reduce your weight if your are overweight.
3. Stop smoking and alcohol.
4. Avoid fatty, oily and sugar food.
5. Keep your blood sugar, bloop pressure and lipid components in control.
6. Avoid stress
As per low fluid intake is concern nothing can be commented without seeing the EKG, blood investigations and ECHO reports.
Best Wishes
