Not the club anyone would like to join, but here we are. I had a few runs of ventricular tachycardia (non-sustained) and managed to capture one on my Alivecor Kardia (worth the expense for just that ecg). I'm now sat in Barts waiting to know whether it's just a subcutaneous ICD or one with wires into the heart so they can also pace if necessary.
I'd like to know any does/don'ts and advice on ICDs and recovery time and how people have gotten in with them and living their lives. I know everyone is different but it would be interesting to know the kind of life in store. I'm 39 so I'm particularly interested in hearing from folk who have received such a device at a similar age.
Thanks in advance .
