Welcome to the group. I understand you've had some trouble getting started, but one of our other moderators has reached out to you to get things going.Tuckerc1 wrote: ↑June 21st, 2018, 12:25 pmHello All. My ICD was implanted a little less than 2 weeks ago due to a sudden episode of Vfib. I'm 46 years old and had a mitral valve replacement in 2017 due to rheumatic disease. The whole situation is very scary and I'm not sure what to do or expect. The doctors said that I could go about my normal activities as I felt comfortable but none of this seems normal to me. I have a constant, still painful, reminder that I'm not really ok. I was hesitant to even look for a support group as I am a very private person. I'm going to try it anyway . Thanks for having me.
As for being scared by your experiences so far, well, welcome to the club! We'll be happy to answer specific questions with our own opinions and experiences. We may also refer you to existing topics (threads, if you prefer) where members have discussed things ad nauseam.
