Patient Comments: Congestive Heart Failure - Treatment

What was the treatment for your congestive heart failure?

Comment from: Maude, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: July 25

Following a heart attack, which was preceded by no symptoms, I underwent a period of congestive heart failure. Stents were inserted in the front of my heart and I received medication for the CHF. After a relatively short time -- matter of a few months-- I no longer needed meds for the CHF. Thankfully, I have had no reoccurrence of the CHF.

For my congestive heart failure, I received a pacemaker and ICD and was placed on medications. That was 2 years ago and I am now doing great. I have no more symptoms and I exercise and eat right.

I was placed on a strict diet. But due to the fact that I had high cholesterol and two arteries blocked, I had a double bypass. The first time they did an angyoplasti and opened one of the arteries. The second time they cut me open. I feel great now. I eat right, exercise, drink plenty of water and very careful with my diet.
