ICD Fitted 8 Hours Ago - Stomach Spasms
Just joined the site after having a quick Google for symptoms. I have just had an ICD fitted literally 8 hours ago and was put in a room to rest. Ever since I have come out of the op, the left side of my stomach / area below my left rib has not stopped twitching. It is now doing hard spasms and will not stop. I can't even sleep because the spasms are that hard. I have drunk plenty of fluid and just took some paracetamol but none of that has changed anything.
They want to discharge me tomorrow but I feel like my life is over already... this ICD was supposed to help me, not give me a non-stop twitching stomach!
Any advice is very much appreciated.
