Re: Why Reduced Activity on Forum

As mentioned above, I think facebook is the main reason. I've been active on forums and before them newsgroups for over twenty years. They were once thriving places with pages and pages of new posts and threads every day, it was difficult to keep up. But like this place, they all seem to be in decli...

Re: Athletic activities and ICDs

I don't surf but I do cycle.

I've cycled about 9,000 miles since I had my ICD implanted in 2013 with no issues (related to cycling) at all.

Get out there and enjoy yourself !

Re: My Arrhythmia diary.

Another small update. I've cut the Amiodarone dose in half and believe it or not am quite worried about any arrhythmia breaking through the chemical shield that the amio provides. I am still on a high dose of nebivolol, a beta blocker with no change to that. Being on Amio is a strange place to be, i...

Re: Our friend Chrissie....

The world has lost a beautiful person, genuinely loved by everyone who was lucky enough to make her acquaintance. So sad to hear this news.

She helped me so much along the years and undoubtedly inspired us all.

My thoughts are with her family.

Re: Gambling with Adrenalin?

Nope, same with skydiving, bungie jumping, hangliding, paragliding, they are also big fat nopes. I get all the adrenaline I need from my parasympathetic nervous system dumping loads of the stuff into my blood stream when it senses any thump or bump from my heart. As far as my nervous is concerned an...

Re: Amiodarone vs Solatol (Betapace)

Thanks Gary, I have had one attempted ablation. Apparently the VT/VF I get isn't suitable for ablation. A bit like whack-a-mole it can pop up anywhere within my heart if it pops up at all. When they attempted the ablation, they couldn't even induce my heart into playing its games. I'm quite anxious ...

Amiodarone vs Solatol (Betapace)

Morning / Afternoon / Evening / Night (depending where you live on this blue'ish marble), Has anyone had any experience taking Solatol (Betapace) Or better still, has anyone had any experience switching from Amiodarone to Solatol (Betapace) ?

Re: Super Cold Weather

I cannot begin to imagine how it must feel with the cold currently being experienced in the US. It is making the news in a big way over here in the UK, the UK that contrary to popular belief has a "Goldilocks" climate where it is never too hot nor too cold. We had a little bit of snow yesterday and ...
