Hello! I was diagnosed with myocarditis in mid-Nov. of last year,
when my EF was 18% and I was really sick. After hospitalization, my Doc
placed me on lisinopril, lanoxin, and lasix. He is an excellent Doc and
I like him. As of 1/29/98, my EF has climbed to 29%. My Doc, however,
has never heard of COQ10 until I told him about it last month, and he has
been consitantly vague about:
(1) physical therapy,
(2) full recovery (if any),
(3) the relationship between myocarditis and CHF, i.e., do I have
CHF now? Am I at risk due to my low EF of contracting CHF in
the future? and,
(4) the conditions which existed in instances where full recovery
has been found.
I understand that myocarditis is a uncommon ailment, but I haven't
been able to find ANYTHING definitive on it. Can someone shed light on
my questions listed above? Thank You Sooo Much,
my questions listed above?
