ICD then ablation???
i recieved an icd in dec. of 2006 for which appears to be a viral cardiomopthy. i have since improved about 90%. the problem is that about 11/2 ago i recieved 4 shocks in one day from av node arrhythmia. my doctor said no big deal i will take you into the lab and do ablation. this was about a month ago and i am still feeling awful from it. i have off and on again burnning over my entire chest, i have not been able to wear a bra for a full day has it feels uncomfortable, just overall something just doesn't seem right! my dr. doesn't seem to know and is not concerned. i was shocked again on av node, but i have not been able to figure out whats going on as my dr. not longer wants to see me because he says i am making to many unessarry calls to his office. in turn he canceled my appointment and i could not get a new dr. and appointment for another month. oh, by the way they had put me on 80mg of soltalol, of course for pacing. so at this point i am not quite sure of outcome of surgery until i see new dr. in the mean time i am still having troublings with sleeping and general feeling discomfort over left side.
does anyone have any feed back for me as i will not see new dr.until july. helpppppppppppp!
