Climbers and ICDs

Post by Climber » October 9th, 2015, 8:28 am

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum. Am wondering whether there are any other rock-climbers out there who are still climbing post-implant of an ICD? I just had mine implanted 7 weeks ago following diagnosis of Brugada syndrome. I don't have any symptoms but did have a syncope 16 years ago, no problems since and I'm not taking any meds. I would be interested in being in touch with other climbers to share experiences, discuss training and stuff like that. Thanks and stay safe everyone :)
