I had a stent put in a couple weeks ago after heart failure. And I still don't feel good. I still have pain in the middle of my stomach. I just believe I am still not better yet.

My symptom of heart failure was occasional shortness of breath. I had very few symptoms, which I understand to be not normal. I have cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, and am at the stage where I need a LVAD (left ventricular assist device), hopefully as a bridge to a heart transplant. I'm 58 years old. I was diagnosed only a year ago, so this has progressed very rapidly in me.
