recently told to quit any type of workout
i have had a ICD for 20+ years and have managed to stay fairly active within my limits (not pushing too hard), as of two weeks ago was doing 60 miles on bike and regular swimming. On a recent echo cardiogram they saw that the right ventrical has become severly dilated and its systolic ability has severly declined. I am told to stop excersing until further notice. the condition is now being labeled as ARVC (Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy) , i previously was diagnosed with excursion induced tachycardias. I havent seen a speciliast yet (seeing one soon) but afraid i am going to be told to stop working out altogether
Has anyone had a simliar experience ? i am sure the doctor will answer some of these questions but does the RV dilation go away ? Thansk in advance.
