Hi, I'm 26 and was diagnosed with the above after having my daughter in july 09', I've been looking for anyone in the uk with a similar experience ever since and this is the closest i've come, although my situation seems slightly different from all of yours i guess no ones is the same. My consultant say's my cardiomyopathy was caused due to the delivery of my daughter, and my blood pressure was so high it was luckily diagnosed straight away before leaving hospital with her, he also say's it can just one day repair itself which i find very confusing, nearly all of my questions to him get answered with 'we don't know' which is very frustrating. My EF in hospital was 10% and at my last echo was 28% so in 15 months it has improved but the doctors want my medication increasing on evry visit which again, i find very confusing but go along with what they say as what other chioce do we have, however saying that i refuse to put my life on hold for example they say i shouldn't fly or leave the country but am looking forward to a family holiday in 2 weeks to Gran Canaria, on that final happy note i thank you all for listening and hope to hear from someone soon.
