Re: Drs. recommending Biventricular ICD ????

What do you mean by remodeled? Is the size more normal? Heart wall thicker? Wall motion return to normal? With an EF of 20 or below, your heart isn't working well. I had an horrific lung infection that had also infected my heart. I went to my GP who sent me from his office to the ER in an ambulance....

Doc Shopping

I fired my original EP in 2016 when I called him to ask about the St. Jude recall and he told me he didn't notify because he didn't want to upset patients. I haven't been shocked since 2015 and my heart has been pretty stable, so I've only had routine interrogations. When I had the recent device cha...

Re: I have a date!!

Thank you for your concern and your suggestions guys. I tried to get an appt with someone at Cleveland Clinic but couldn't get anything until early October, so I ended up at Mayo. I had several pictures of the progress and both docs I saw felt like my incision was being treated appropriately. Now th...

Re: My Arrhythmia diary.

I'm sorry to hear your solution is also the problem. I had a very overactive thyroid in 2005. I eventually had it removed. But I say that because the thing that sent me to the doc was the heart. I started feeling what I learned was VT and it was relentless. When I finally went to the ER, my resting ...

Re: Check In...!!!

Nice to see everyone here in the same place! Seems 2019 has been challenging for all of us! My heart is doing what it does, nothing less. I had my device replaced, blah blah blah. I've haven't gone into my office in 3 weeks. I rarely miss a day going to the office, even when I'm sick. I think I like...

Re: I have a date!!

My incision seems to have improved...…………..at least not gotten any worse. I did notice a new spot that seems to have opened. Very small though. The fluid seeping out of the incision is now mostly clear. So far, it seems to have been very superficial, right at the incision. I did learn a few things, ...

Re: Welcome Karen (and new question on leads)

Hey Karen. I'm glad you came here for answers. There are a lot of very knowledgeable and experienced folks here. Sometimes our docs don't seem to understand our complaint/question and often end up giving us answers that really doesn't help us. Or maybe we just don't ask the right questions because w...

Re: I have a date!!

I don't know what is going on with the lead. Today, he poked at the device repeatedly like he was banging on a vending machine that didn't give you your snack. The monitor didn't show any noise, so it doesn't really seem like a loose connection. He sent me for a chest x ray to see of there is someth...

Holy Cow!
It really sucks to be 39. I hope the 40s are better to you.
