i had congestive heart failure at age 23(january 2005), after having my first baby. it was the scariest experience of my life. i remember my ankles being swelled up so big i couldnt even get my socks on. i couldnt sleep because i couldnt lay down because when i did, i wasnt able to breathe. here i am, a brand new mom trying to take care of a 5 day old baby and i cant even function. my babys dad came home one day & finally took my complaints serious & called 911...i spent 4 days in the hospital & have been fine since. i had another baby, even though i was told not to because having a baby is what triggered the CHF in the first place, and everything went well. the doctor said my heart got a little weaker but i survived. i was on tons of meds at first, but now i just take coreg and i feel normal! thanks for listening!!
