The icd was implanted in 2019,nov. Vstat. It has not fired at all since implant. My question is, has anyone had it fire when there was nothing happening. Like a defective firing. Could it be possible that if my heart rate stays normal it may never fire?

Many people have an icd for years and it never fires. That's a good thing! It's there as an insurance policy and we hope to never need it. 

Firing incorrectly is very rare. 

You know you're wired when...

You invested in the Energizer battery company.

I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
