Getting Defibrillator on Friday
I'm 52/F who had a LAD Heart attack (aka Widowmaker) Jun, 2019. At the time my ejection fraction was 10-15%. After hard work, eating better and losing lots of weight, it went to 35-40%. Last week, echo revealed that it is now 20-25% so I was referred to an Electrophysiologist. My appointment was earlier today and they scheduled the procedure for this Friday.
I was definitely scared out of my mind but I wanted to thank everyone posting for sharing your stories. It armed me with tons of good info so I could ask the right questions. The Electrophysiologist answered them all. He even, at my request and soon will find out if at my own expense, allowed me to do another echo just to be sure. Sort of a second opinion for me to ease my mind and to be sure I was making the right decision.
I am so fortunate to have found this forum. I truly wish the best for each and every one of you. I will post after my procedure. Thank you all again.
