So, I'm a 43 year old that was recently diagnosed with a weak / enlarged heart. My first major symptoms actually occurred this past thanksgiving while I was at Disney. Since then I've done the asthma / prednisone/ inhaler and finally a chest x-ray and echo two weeks ago. My main concern is shortness of breath just walking. I am on a beta blocker and cardiologist so far thinks it's only a virus that caused it. I'm supposed to have cardiac catherization soon to make sure. Anyway, I'm scheduled for a trip back to the world in April. I'm not so concerned about the going on rides, as I'm ok skipping them. But I'm concerned most about the walking and the backpack I usually carry. So, should I rent a ecv (but I really don't want to worry about the / taking it away from someone else), get a rollator, or just find a wheeled cart/ backpack? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks. -Virginia
