My husband passed away three weeks ago after a 4 yr battle with Sarcoidosis of the heart. He was 55.The disease caused acute heart failure. He was on a concoction of steroids for over a year. He and we (myself and our 15 yr old son) had always assumed he would get better, particularly after the ablation surgery he had 9 wks ago. We are absolutely devastated and still none the wiser as to how he contracted the disease or why he couldn't be cured. He spent much of the last year being treated in Harefield heart hospital.
