Three months ago, my husband (57 years old) had heart
attack with emergency quad bypass. After the surgery, and again after 3 1/2 weeks, the echo showed EF 30-35%. All has gone remarkably well with recovery, however, he has been wearing the life vest because of the lower EF. Now, after this week's echo (at 3 months), it shows no improvement, still EF 30-35%. Cardiologist says now he should have internal defib inserted. We are concerned about the benefits vs. any limitations he may have.
