1 Year Since Heart Transplant Scare

Published by at 12:00 pm under Heart

WOW, can you believe today is the one year anniversary of me going to California Pacific Medical Center and starting my scare ordeal of potentially getting a heart transplant.  Just can’t believe it has been one year already.  Don’t get me wrong I am happy to put distance between me and that situation.  I saw my cardiologist heart doctor today ironically one year from when I first met him.

I lost over 140 pounds due to weight loss surgery and now have an ejection fraction of 44%. That is amazing considering a year ago I weighed in at 359 pounds and had an ejection fraction of 10% looking at a heart transplant.  Needless to say today is a good day because I don’t have a scar from my chin to my belly from a heart transplant.
