Everyone, I had a three prong CRT-D implaned five weeks ago. I never had any heart problems, but was diagnosed with a left bundle branch blockage in a routine EKGin preparation for surgery on my hand. I was not fatigued, short of breath and had no symptoms. Now after the surgery, I feel tired, my legs hurt and I am generally anxious at night when I go to bed. I feel my heart beating. I have monitoring on my cell phone. No one has called me about any info my device has transmitted. Is this normal?
You know you're wired when...
You fondly named your implanted buddy.
Just because you have a device doesn't mean you are damaged goods and can't do anything worthwhile and have to lie down and die. In fact, you're better and stronger. You're bionic!
