Heart Failure Support Group

Heart failure is a condition that can result from any structural or functional cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the heart to fill with or pump a sufficient amount of blood throughout the body. It is often undiagnosed due to a lack of a universally agreed definition and difficulties in diagnosis, particularly when the condition is considered "mild."

Jami,

I am sorry to hear that you feel bad, however I do no think that 4 pounds can justify that you feel so bad, have you plans to get a complete blood test? Could be anemia.

I'm not a doc, but, do you have permission to pop an extra lasix? You may be dehydrated. With my chf it seems to be a delicate dance to stay well.:)

    I have cancer

    34
    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
