Hello, I have a similar type of device implanted. But mine was for a different reason. I have the CRT-D. Which has three types of help for me. I have not been shocked as of yet. I’ve come to terms with the device. After the implantation the will probably be some weight lifting limitations but as you heal from it you may even forget it is inside of you.
Hello @WillowG! How are you?
Thank you for starting this discussion today! Living with an Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) can seem like a huge change, yet the people I know, who live with it, are ok. It is something you should always be aware of, but it can be a huge help in your life, therefore I think talking to other patients and learning more about it can help you get used to the idea of it. I will tag some members who might want to share their thoughts on this topic.

I have been recommended ICD for arrhythmia. Does anyone have it? What is it like having it? Any limitations? Thanks
