my grandmother recently just went to the hospital lastnight because of her feet/legs swelling. They had been swollen for some days now. I called this morning and she told me she had congestive heart failure. Now, they are running more tests today.My question is this. Are there stages to this or something along that line. Ive looked it up on google and know about how the body holds Xtra water and it effects your heart,And oxygen gets blocked from going threw out the bodys areas.
Once youve been diagnosed, will they start treatment immed.?Will that then help your heart to start doing some repair?And help you feel better..?
Any info will be apprechated. Im totally in shock about all this, But i guess its good to find out now, then her waiting and having a heart-attack of something worse happen down the line.. Thanks
