Patient Comments: Congestive Heart Failure - Prognosis

What's your prognosis with congestive heart failure?

Comment from: Cherry, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: May 13

With congestive heart failure I had sudden swelling of the legs and collapsed. I responded to treatment after several weeks of being severely ill. Now I'm on warfarin, Lasix, magnesium and oxygen at home and coping well. I am maintaining constant weight and waist measurement; am on fluid restriction and doing well with studies.
