  • A Follow-up Rpeort of Septal Myctomy

    I have resumed my regular life and work activities (except for lifting heavy things). I have been in cardiologist office twice (next appointment is scheduled for the April) and was told that heart is just like a healthy normal one. I was able to walk on treadmill for about 17 minutes with speed of 2.8-3.0 in the 5th week of the surgery

    Gone the strange murmur, dizziness, black-outs, shortness of breath, and all other problems. Stairs and uphill walks are not scary any more.

    The only sign of surgery is the scars of opening of the chest and some very minor discomfort with ribs trying to get aligned – when I wake up in morning or if push myself a little bit too far. It might take up to 5-6 months to return to normal.
