Unsure About the Future
Twenty-one years ago I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease and underwent six months of chemo and six months of radiation. The blockage was a side effect of radiation. Two years ago I started having chest pains, and ended up having three stents in two arteries.
Last year I had a quadruple bypass. This year, I had two stents in two arteries in February and another stent in March, and I started having chest pains again a few weeks ago.
Doctors started me on medication, but I am fearful that there is more blockage. I am constantly tired and too short of breath to do much. I am having surgery to sew my left diaphragm down due to being paralyzed from bypass surgery, and during the consult, a heart transplant was brought up. Unsure about my future.
