      Well, just starting here tonight.
      I was told today that the Myectomy is my best route and will be going in for it in the next few months.

          I am a month out of having my extended septal myectomy on Nov 8th 2016. I feel good just wish the scabs would fall off my drainage tube sights. I had the procedure done at the mayo clinic in Minnesota. Waiting to start my cardiac rehab. The scariest part of the whole ordeal was the 2 nights of afib.
