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!

You know you're wired when...

You have a $50,000 chest.
