About Me: Male, 56, Delhi, India, member since Apr 2008
I suffered heart attack in August 2007 due to 100% blockage in LAD which was opened by stent but not before it damaged walls of my heart left ventricle leading to an EF of 30%. I walk 30 minutes daily, take beta blockers and ACE-I along with other drugs. I am continuing
[More] with my work. My condition improved upto EF of 40% but again it went down to 30%. I otherwise feel all right but for some tiredness and fatigue associated with my drugs. I strictly folllow low fat and low salt diet. My BP is 105/70 most of the time. Due to my low EF I was implanted a single lead ICD. I have few more blockages eg in D2, branch of RCA. My LCx is 100% blocked but is getting retrogradely filled by RCA and LAD. I am hopeful that one day my condition will get better and draw strength from similar experiences of some forum members. I live and work in Delhi, India. I am an engineer by profession. I like music and traveling. Unfortunately due to my heart condition I am unable to travel now. But I am hopeful that I will get better enough to resume travelling.
