    Joe
    Good for you, for being so vigilant, you've made a good decision, having a myectomy. There are plenty of us here, as you can see with the myectomy experience, so that can be reassuring. Let us know about any questions & concerns.
    My prayers are with you.

    Hi Joseph.
    If you have any questions about the surgery and recovery, you can PM me (you too Edwin).
    My Myectomy was on 2/18 at New England Medical.
    I'm guessing you are a very determined individual, because you ended up in some of the best hands an HCM patient can be in.

    Hi Joe,

    I'm a newbie to the board too.

    I'm scheduled for myectomy dec 9 or so at Cleveland Clinc also.
    Dr Lever is my doc, and Dr Smedira is the surgeon

    My local cardio only wanted to an ICD, but we went to see Dr. Maron in Minnesota , and he recommended a myectomy..

    I'll keep you updated.. Hopefully I do as a well as Stuart and Tigger

    Take care,
    Edwin

    Welcome Joseph,

    I had my Myectomy at the Cleveland Clinic on August 31st.
    Dr Lytle & DR Smedira are the top 2 Myecytomy surgeons at CCF. You are in great hands.
