Group Description

My name is Martyn Painter, (that’s a picture of me on the right) I am 41 and I have Dilated Cardiomyopathy, which is a disease of heart that leads to Congestive Cardiac Failure (Heart Failure). It was diagnosed during April 2002 after I went to Casualty because I was feeling so unwell and was getting no help from my G.P. I am being seen by my G.P., local Cardiac Specialist and the Transplant team at Harefield Hospital (I am not currently on the transplant list). I go up to Middlesex every six months to be access for the list, so far my medication is keeping my heart stable, a full list of all the medication I take is below. I have taken medical retirement from my job with Barclays bank.
I have noticed that most of the groups on Yahoo are US based and the medications and treatments are very different. I wanted to set up this group so UK based people could talk and support each other. While this is true I would welcome any members from the around the world to share and discuss and problems or issues.
This site is not just for people with DCM but also for carers, family and friends, I really want to make it relaxed and fun, please discuss anything related to heart disease and how it effects your life.
This group has been going for over two years and I would like to thank all members past and present for their posts, it has been a great experience for me and I hope for others.
My daily Medication –
Frusemide 80mg
Ramipril 10mg
Carvedilol 100mg
Warfarin 3 or 4mg
Thyroxine 25mcg
Thiamine 100mg
Multi-Vits 1 tablet
Fluoxetine 60mg

We have information in the files and links section and members are encouraged to add any information related to DCM at any time.
Please enjoy the group and post as regularly as you can.
