Hey John,<quoted text>
I had the ICD (Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator) implanted in my upper left chest just below my collarbone last Monday. It was very minor surgery that went well. Just some lingering minor residual pain at the implant site and where the incision was made for the implant. From all I've heard it can be a life saver if needed for someone with the heart fraction numbers and heart condition I have.
So far so good. In a perfect world it will never be needed but it's there just in case it is. I go in tomorrow to have it checked and to have the tape taken off of the incision site where the dissolvable sutures were used.
I still have many restrictions as to what I can and can't do but nothing to bad. Within a month or so I should be back to being able to do all that I could do before the implant.
Have a great night. God bless.
Great to hear! Knew you were going in for it, don't know if you caught a prior post to that affect and for prayer, but, all seems on the up and up for ya now.
Things well(health wise) here, so, in Him lettuce give thanks(as ol' Ham would say:)
