Re: Drs. recommending Biventricular ICD ????

Thinking I would rather just suddenly drop dead than worry with the fear and anxiety every time my ICD shocks me I'm all in for the suddenly drop dead part. I do think you are greatly exaggerating the ICD shock exposure. I'm not a betting man, but I'd bet you would NEVER get a shock-ICDs and their ...

Re: Drs. recommending Biventricular ICD ????

Did I miss your intro Mr. Dawg? How old are you? The reason, among many, that I ask is if you were 90 I'd say you'd be nuts to get an ICD and pass up the pleasant chance to die in your sleep from cardiac arrest. If you are 60 then we have to do some additional thinking. Are you following any of this...

Re: am I dead yet? ...

I noted another new and glorious feature, blood in my stool. I'm not sure you're thinking as good as you used to think. This could be a good sign-colorectal cancer. This might get you in the medicinal marijuana group faster and more importantly, you could hope would kill you faster than this heart ...

Drug Price Check

We know from past experience that a primary gout remedy Colchicine costs about $170 in the US and the exact same prescription in Canada costs $17, but really who wants to put up with their Prime Minister and horrible winters? And who really cares if our FDA has no clue on what they're doing? So my i...

Re: Check In...!!!

I've been spending a lot of time with my daughters (two are on 12 months of maternity leave ) A YEAR? A freakin YEAR of maternity leave? Who is paying for their health insurance? What kind of country do you live in? The cold weather must have frozen your brains. Successfully and enjoyably dating fo...

Re: I have a date!!

Just my $0.02 on the matter: See an infection control doctor. Preferably one located far from your current doctor. My doc is considered one of the finest in the southeast. Perhaps he/she is. But I wish I had a nickel for everyone here who has ever posted about having the finest _________________ (fi...

Re: Anxiety Attacks

Hi John, welcome to the neighborhood. Can you spell Xanax? Most everyone here is familiar with it (generic alprolazam or something like that). It is a mild anti anxiety drug that sooner or later seems to show up in the medicine cabinets of ICD patients. Personally I’m a fan of the stuff as it appear...

Re: am I dead yet? ...

So what are you going to miss when you're dead? The nightly news on Fox? Are you going to miss learning the world is ending in 12 (now 11) years because some people were too stupid to see the writing on the wall? How about not having to diet again, not that dieting ever worked. Will you miss that ha...
