Sounds like your doing better. That’s a blessing! The cardiologist wants to put in a a defibrillater if I’m not over 30% ejection fraction in a few weeks. I feel great, and think I’m way over 30% now but we wil see. I’m not supposed to lift over 20 pounds, so not lifting has me shrinking, I feel like a puss, but its better than being dead. Lol. We are already friends partner!

Prayers for you man! I was just diagnosed w chronic and acute heart failure. I’m at 15% heart efficiency 3 months ago. Hoping to improve at next check up. Shit is scary as hell! I feel for ya dude. I don’t blame it on gear at all, but who knows. I was a solid 270 now I’m 235. I gotta get back in the gym as soon as the doc clears me. Like I said man prayers to you!
I was mistaken...the Internet said my heart was working at 40%... The cardiologist said 20%...I am extremely tired but can't sleep...my breathing is quite labored...I have zero appetite...

Prayers sent. I got rhabdo, grand mal seizure, death (was brought back) and had a cardiac ablation so I can related. Was told yesterday my shoulder is beyond repair and needs replacement so I am just going to train with pain for a while.

Your situation...it is amazing what docs are able to do today if they catch you in time, so I am hoping for he best outcome for you.

Is 20% your ejection fraction rate? That often improves once other problems are resolved. For example, A Fib can be repaired w/ a cardiac ablation, and often when the A Fib is resolved the ejection fraction improves, called the chicken and egg scenario in the academic literature.

Interestingly, my cardiologist has no problem with HRT. Just keep your dosages reasonable.

My cardiologist has no problem with TRT....but that means no more than 200 mgs.

Sorry to hear Koolio and prayers for a quick and complete recovery. I know that recovery can be ups and downs. I hope you are able to get and stay in a positive state of mind as many others have said.
