Possibly having an ICD implanted after my 27 year old sister died suddenly
My sister and i are two years apart exactly (she just turned 27 and i just turned 25). We have both had seemingly random syncope episodes our entire lives. We both have had extensive cardiac workups that showed nothing. She died suddenly a couple weeks ago, presumably a sudden cardiac death as her heart stopped beating for no apparent reason. Everything looked normal on her autopsy too. I went back to my cardiologist and he has mentioned potentially putting an ICD in sometine soon. Even though my sister and i have never gotten a diagnosis. I'm nervous because it's still up in the air. I would definitely feel safer with one as my doctor suspects some form of a rare genetic syndrome that is hard to trace. Has anyone gotten an ICD for a similar reason? Or has any other helpful thoughts to share?
