I was born with heart disease and have been told that a heart transplant is in my future at some point. I had open heart surgery as a baby, and just had my first ablation last week. It’s been rough.

Do you have any advice to someone who might be starting down their own ‘seven year journey’ towards a transplant?

Thanks for all this great information! Best of luck to you, friend!

Thank you for responding. I had the very same things packed in my overnight bag for the ablation.

The doctors said it was very successful, but I’m just feeling impatient. I’m still tired, my heart rate is still elevated, and i know I need to just chill. Like you said - I need to learn to be patient with myself. This is not a sprint.

I also wanted to say - Welcome to the Zipper Club! Our scars are bomb, and never let anyone tell you differently. Without them we would not be here.

Thanks again & best of luck!
