My father is 59 years old. Eight years back he had heart attack and the next year he underwent CABG. Presently, he is feeling uncomfortable and got an angiogram and cardiac PET/CT imaging done. It stated that he has severe LV dysfunction of more than 30 percentage. He also has severe cough. Along with these tests he got a chest x-ray and blood test too. Now, doctor has suggested to undergo ICD and lifetime medication. Please suggest an alternative to improve his heart condition. Thank you.
