My mom was just diagnosed with cardiomyopathy after having back surgery and having breathing complications after surgery. She was in CICU for 6 days, but is home now, thank god. I've done some reading on this condition and it doesn't seem like the prognosis is very good. I'm reading anywhere from 5-10 years. I'm very worried about her changing her lifestyle and what this is going to mean for her life. Any feedback from anyone who has delt with this would be greatly appreciated. It's been very difficult to get any information out of my father in regards to my mom's condition. I think he is in denial that anything is seriously wrong. Plus, I've had issues with them keeping information from me in the past, so I'm having trouble trusting anything they say. Help!
