ICDs & Amiodarone
On Feb 21st,2007,my husband passed away. In June,2006 they implanted an ICD and a week later he got 5 shocks,one so bad he felt like it was going to knock him out of his chair. They put him back in the hospital & put him on Amiodarone.They sent him home and he started having trouble breathing. I kept calling his heart Doctor and he did nothing except a chest xray & said his lungs were fine. From June till Feb I was complaining to the doctor that he was having trouble breathing. He did nothing.
In Feb I brought him to the emergency room. They kept him in the hospital & the 1st thing they did was take him off Amiodarone because he had a collapsed lung. They now had him on 3 pages of medications. On the evening of Feb 21st my husband,my best friend,passed away. Marcia
