I think this is another case of “everyone’s different”, but I’m on an every 6 months follow-up with my cardiologist now. It was more frequent at first, because of the LVDD, and because she was willing to “try a few things” (bless her heart). They will want to give you a ‘good once over’ to start with (they will pay particularly close attention to all aspects of the echo). Then, depending upon whether they find anything wrong, what it is, what medications (if any) are required, they’ll set up your next follow up. I just requested the raw data from my last two echos, because she said my ejection fraction had also improved, but I don’t remember what it was! I’ll post it when I receive it, OK? I know a few of us have COPD, congestive heart failure, and even pulmonary hypertension. My mom’s pulmonary hypertension seemed to come on over-night, and a few of us talk about how we ‘feel’ as though we have it off and on. We wonder if that is even possible. I don’t know, but I DO recommend a good cardiologist and regular echos. Please let us know how yours comes out!
