Lets get this group going again.

Post by dad4dds » December 24th, 2012, 2:40 am

In October 2009 I had a pacer put in because of a slow heart rate. On Sunday December 9 I had a Ventricular Tachycardia. My heart rate got up to 175bpm for 2 min. On December 13 I had a BiVentricular/ICD put in. Well on my way to recovery. Hope to help anyone who may need someone to talk to.

I think you should send a PM to ~Guin. I believe she can get you in touch with the support group. I do believe it is still active and I believe she was somewhat instrumental in getting it started. She pops in now and again, but if you PM her, an alert will show up in her email. You could also try that route also. Just click on her name next to Moderator of this particular group, and then you will pull up her profile and the option to PM her is down in the lower left corner.

Good Luck,
