Can somebody shed some light

Hi I am a 29 semi proffesional sportsman, I was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy by accident due to a blood clot, I have seen the results of an echo from around 5 month ago when I had the blood clot and it said I have an ejection rate of about 30% yet since then have got back in training as the cardiologist said I could go back to my training routine, I now run 2 mile everyday fast and have a 1 1/2 gym session after and rugby train twice a week. I do not suffer from any symptoms apart from dizziness due to the bisoprolol, Do you think my ef is still at 30%?? Would I be able to do this if ef was so low?

This is a question for your doctors, as we are not qualified to answer such a question. It would take your doctor who is aware of your medical history, and have the advantage of testing and other diagnostic measures to keep you safe while you train.

Re: Can somebody shed some light

Ok thank you for your reply, I understand a little bit more about the condition now as I have done some research. I will just wait to see my cardiologist and hopefully he can give me some answers

It's awful though as it really plays on your mind, I have got to keep telling myself that I would not even know I had the condition if I had not got a blood clot ha.

Thanks again.
