one month since implant

Post by tip » December 15th, 2017, 6:41 pm

I feel good. I thought it would take longer to feel better. I had a hard time accepting that I needed an ICD. Nine months ago I was discharged from the hospital with a Zoll vest, I wore it for one month and sent it back. I thought I could work my way out of my problem. I made dramatic changes in my life style but I could not change my condition. I am glad and thankful for this technology.

I am glad things are going well for you. Remember you should try to get into a cardio rehab program to help you learn what you need to do to keep as fit as you can.

Please do keep us updated.
