Hi, glad to hear the first one has went well, and I hope the cardioversion is the same, I am going in on the 15th Dec for my icd, I just wish it wasn't so near Xmas, I hate the thought of not being able to drive over the festive season x

He said no driving four weeks and no flying six, so I had to cancel my new years holiday to Spain, absolutely gutted about that, stuck in freezing cold Scotland with nae mates as they are all going, life's a b ๐Ÿ˜ข, as far as I know it's just the basic model ๐Ÿ˜€x

That's what I've got, I went to the gene clinic, but nothing obvious showed up, my two boys and my brother have been asked to go for an echocardiogram and an ecg, I really hope they go! And they are all fine x

Hi Wodney

I'm new on here and have just been reading your posts! Man you've had your fare share by the sounds of it..

I've just had an ablation and this site has been so, so helpful! The replies I've had so far have been great..

I also have HCM! as well and a defib is a possibility with me. At the moment other that the afib and constant palpitations i was getting everything ig good so hopefully the ablation will take care of that! Would be good to keep in touch as i don't know anyone yet with similar health issues! Hope you don't mind me getting in touch mate..

Cheers

So glad to hear everything went well i know how u feel i am going for my 6 week check up today :-)

And i dont know what you have been told about what you can and cant do but if u have any questions dont hesitate to ask cos i did the same i learned so much by asking on here x

Iโ€™ve had my icd in since jan but they phoned me last week saying they wanted to update my icd new software for it

Had my Pre Op Assessment yesterday and due in on the 21 December for my ICD. Found a lot of the info on here was covered by the medical staff. (so well done Forum) Very pleased to hear that I will have a 1 month driving ban instead of 6 as my issue is to do with AF and not VF

I'm like you Wodney1966. Inherited Dilated cardimyopathy

Had mine 18 month lol more scared of that than heart attack lol
