New to the ICD world
About 3 1/2 weeks ago I was fitted with a CRT-D. The reason for the device was, I had a bad episode of 3rd degree heart block with a 33.7% EF. The doc was saying that I may have ARVC, which I was told is a genetic disease. The doc also said that he is not entirely sure if I have ARVC. No one on any sides of my parents had SCA, pacemaker, or have dropped dead from a heart problem, so that's why the doc is uncertain about the ARVC diagnosis.
I notice that when I go to bed, I wake-up feeling weak and not myself. My low heart rate or heart block episodes seem to happen when I was sleeping. I snore loud, but I do not have apnea. I am nervous for some reason and have a hard time accepting the fact that i'm 41 yrs old, had an extrememly active life, and did 25 years in the army with no issues prior. Only recently I've been feeling really ill with the block and I think the ICD is a good fit for me. I have a ton of questions, but it might be better to discuss those with my cardiologist. I have some moderate to severe scarring in my left and right ventricles. Does the heart eventually rejuvenate after the ICD is installed?
