I'm having this device implanted in August. It was advised by my EP cardiologist after an echocardiogram to check my heart after paroxysmal AF episodes. He thinks I'm at risk of heart failure. I will be having 3 leads fitted and at some point later, I'll have an ablation to, hopefully, prevent AF episodes. I'm assured that the quality of my life will be greatly improved. I hope so, because I sometimes feel suicidal. I cant walk more than a few steps without getting breathless and stairs are a no-no. I'm severely limited as to where I can go, I depend a lot on my husband and he already has an ICD implant!! My incapacity affects both our lives...I so hope the doctors' plans will work for me.
