Hi Bob!

Really sorry that you've been so much. As I'm sure you've realised here - you are not alone. As Steve and others have said this is a great bunch of people!

Re: shaky and racing heart.

Caffeine is a major trigger for my 'shaky', tripping heart. Its funny, but I've never heard anyone else describe their heart as 'shaky', but that is exactly what mine frequently feels like and how I describe it!

Re: ICD replacement/battery low

I have a general anaesthetic because I have CPVT which could react very badly under sedation only.

I've never had sedation, although I think that I would prefer it as it takes so long for me to recover from a GA!

Re: sharp pain after implant?

Aches and pains are normal after implant. It may be scar tissue from the first implant that is disturbed. Unlikely to be anything more, but you'll know more more after the check up.

Fingers crossed for you both!
