Pre-Op anxiety and what to expect after ?
I'm 27 years old and am due to have an ICD fitted in 48 hours. My anxiety levels are through the roof and made worse by the fact my farther passed away from the same condition at a young age.
Does anyone have any advice for how to deal with this anxiety, perhaps subject focused books, videos etc ?
Additional does anyone have any recommendations for the recovery period. I'm very active and would like to be out walking and perhaps on an exercise bike in 2 weeks. is this realistic ?
Thanks in advance.

The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
