Re: am I dead yet? ...

Hello Robo, I hated the wheezing and gurgling too. For me that was the beginning though, my first symptoms to lead to diagnosis. I am sorry life is sucky right now. Just watch all the comedy movies you can, since I think laughter trumps all things. Of course, it sometimes makes you pee a little...bu...

Re: Has anyone had reduced upper breast fullness due to ICD implant?

I do not have this issue but am guessing it is due to the placement as well. The device displaces tissue and takes a while to settle in to it's new spot. My scar/skin is very sensitive at the incision still and I am atypical anyway, so I wear a strapless from Victoria Secret but leave the (removable...

Re: Our friend Chrissie....

I haven't been on the site for quite some time, so I'm just seeing this. I know she was fighting cancer again, but somehow I still expected her to be here, because she always seemed to be here no matter what. She was such a help to so many on this site, including me, and she was a great ambassador f...

Re: Post Op Fever

My Latitude still reads nightly. I never know when it does unless I see the light come on. My heart is doing well now so not sure I even need nightly. But I know it reads nightly because my doctor's office has called me while on vacation to make sure it didn't become disconnected because it didn't r...

Re: Post Op Fever

Rugmankc, are you on any other meds? Based on what you said, I don't think you are but...I had trouble with a few because they were dropping my BP too low and causing dizziness and definitely a groggy feeling. Just thought I'd mention it. They can keep adjusting them until you are comfortable with it.

Re: Soreness several years out

Hello, in response to the initial question, yes I still have soreness. It sometimes is tender to the touch and I also have soreness around it in the muscle area. I especially feel it when I've been bouncing around in an off road vehicle or hauling wood. I have talked to my doctor and he has offered ...

Re: Pacing at the same time

Has anyone noticed the light on their home monitor go off when it "reads" you? My latitude unit has such a bright light that I have to cover it with a black cloth to sleep (I can't sleep with any light in the room). But I do see the light still come on through the fabric once in a great while, durin...

Re: Not one thing but another

Chrissy, so sorry to hear it's only getting worse. Life certainly is not fair. Hoping for things to turn around for you soon. Time for you to watch some comedy on the tv to get some good laughs. Laughter takes your mind off things for a while. Maybe old I Love Lucy reruns?? Take care.

Re: Burning sensations in body after inplant

Kathy, I did have what I would call a burning sensation around my ICD, as well as into my armpit area for a while- I'm going to guess up to 6 months out. It was most noticeable if I stretched in any way. I remember it when getting out of bed in the morning too. It did go away. My doctor described it...
