Esther12, thank-you for your concern. Let's just say the heart attack did nothing to improve my condition, that is for certain. If anything it has been like climbing out of a well with oil slick hands. My EF is now at 35-40% ( 55%-75% normal) , so I am out of defibrillator territory. The left ventricular function is abnormal. The entire apex and mid and distal anterior septum are akinetic. ( don't move) The mid lateral wall is hypokinetic. The mid anterior , mid posterior wall , mid inferior wall and mid inferoseptum are severely hypokinetic. I am in systolic and diastolic heart failure. So what Dr. Pierotti / Dr. Teitelbaum's Fibro and Fatigue Center did was detrimental to my longevity, according to Dr.Cheney. This is really unfortunate because I have always maintained a healthy life style... There was no way I was having a heart attack until I met the Fibro and Fatigue Centers. All of this is on top of having CFIDS/ME/ mold/biotoxin illness. I was tested and I have the dreaded genes that do not allow me to detox toxins from my body... 4 3 53.... I have MARCONS , as tested in my nasal passages , which is an antibiotic resistant staff. And Dr. Pierotti thought I wasn't sick.. I was a hormone only patient. If this isn't a case of true medical negligence, then nothing is.
