ICD Removal

Has anyone ever gotten their ICD removed? Starting my research for it and what better way than to hear personal experiences! 


ICD removal

I had an event in late Oct, I got shocked 35 times before they could stop the V fib.  2 stents and more meds later I’m alive!  The worst side effect is panic attacks, never had them before this event. Now, I freak out at the slightest feeling in my chest.

Every doctor told me I’d be dead without my ICD. I hate it, but thank God I have it!

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
