Anyone here had their icd removed?
Im 26 yeara old, I've had my ICD for 20 months now, since having the icd I have had problem after problem,
1 Month after surgery I got a blood clot in the lung, followed by a heart attack.
4 months post surgery I got another blood clot which blocked most blood flow to my left arm, which is now in constant pain, I can't hold anything longer then 10 seconds or my arm gets very weak and swollen (yes I still have the clot there, doctors say it will never desolve)
For the last 6 or so months my legs are constantly aching, I always get a electrical zap feeling in my calves which I've had numerous scans on and nothing shows up.
My icd has been helpful in some ways showing long periods of AF which I have under control now and some small cases of VT
But besides these I feel my ICD has killed everything I enjoyed about life.
I'm also on warfarin and verapamil (recently swapped from metropolol)
Has anyone here had their icd removed and how did that go for you?
