I have this rheumatic heart disease which concerns me a lot. I developed this condition since I was 5 years old but was only diagnosed when I'm about 14 years of age because only during that time the signs and symptoms are more likely evident.But I was lucky enough because after a year I got cured I just have to continue all my medications for maintenance.well,assured enough that I'm well I sometimes don't take my maintenance meds. As a result I was hospitalized and from oral medication it was shifted to injection....Im worried if it will be a lifetime injection or not..oh I wish it will not be coz I can't take it anymore...

Hi bestie,I am sorry to hear this. But you need not worry that much. Modern technology and medical science have progressed enormously. There are certain things that you should do like take rest, as much as possible. There is no substitute to this. Take proper medication and go to expert cardiologist. And about the injection, if you are talking about penicillin, I think you only requite to take it till you are around 30. After that it hardly works. You take care hun.
