Ongoing Care at Home

Although many aspects of heart failure cannot be reversed, treatment can often improve symptoms and help you live longer. You and your WellStar physician can work together to make your life more comfortable so pay close attention to your body and your post-treatment regimen and keep your doctor updated. As part of your post-treatment care and in addition to maintaining a healthy diet and exercise, you should:

  • Keep track of all medications you take
  • Avoid certain over-the-counter medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen, naproxen and others), cold medications and diet pills
  • Keep track of your weight and blood pressure
  • Write down your questions and never be afraid to ask your WellStar physicians for clarification
