10% heart use
An_252409 posted:
My son is 37 years old. He had a meth habit for about 5 years. Last week he was hospitalized for fluid in his lungs, shortness of breath and swollen ankles. The hospital ran tests, no blockage. They cleared his lungs and ankles and released him yesterday with a "life vest" telling him he has only 10% heart use (weak heart). He has been pretty healthy for about 3 years now working in a fire camp. Does anyone know what the next step for him is? Is it possible for the heart to get stronger? Thank you
