Re: Drs. recommending Biventricular ICD ????

Whatever you decide, just be aware far too frequently the first symptom people experience is death, which is almost always fatal.

By the way, do you happen to have any golf clubs?

Re: Drs. recommending Biventricular ICD ????

Assuming the EF numbers you are citing are accurate combined with no symptoms, were I you I'd think long and hard about an ICD. THESE THINGS HAVE SAVED MANY OF OUR LIVES (sorry for the unintentional caps) but while few, there are horror stories as well. My suggestion, and I'm a pro ICD advocate, try...

Brothers and sisters, all join in..."it's 9 o'clock on a Saturday"...make that Thursday.

Re: Doc Shopping

When I was doc shopping I was very methodical. Made a list of my goals and objectives and what I expected. My number one goal was quality of life over quantity. I wrote a list of discussion topics and questions, then set about my search. I asked everyone I know who they recommended and as importantl...

Re: Welcome LukeG

My sincere sympathy on your loss. Sadly stories like the one you shared do happen, however bear in mind they are quite rare when you look at the total device implants performed each year. I had my own unfortunate incident with a defibrillator implant a few years back, is it 3 years already, but know...

Re: am I dead yet? ...

Been a rough few weeks and there were several days where I thought we were finally at the last page of my book. My heart has learned new tricks. It races out of control for 15 to 20 minutes. To say it's uncomfortable would be an understatement. Just when I thought I couldn't take it anymore it stopp...

Gauntlets and shields. I might take up jousting and join my local jousting club. Every English town has one and it is still a very popular sport over here. and to think someone at another support site was worried about the hazards of knitting with a defibrillator.
