Receiving a diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension can be life-altering. Once the initial shock of having a disease that most have never heard of fades, patients are left with the reality of living with PH. Although significant changes in lifestyle are often necessary to accommodate PH, most patients continue to lead happy and fulfilling lives. Many patients continue to work, and some choose to travel. PH patients continue to raise their families and can find ways to make day-to-day tasks a little easier.
Resources and support make living with PH easier. PHA Canada is committed to helping those affected by PH enjoy a better quality of life. Visit the following pages in the patient resources sections for information which help help patients to better understand their disease.
