I had my bi-ventricular defibrillator implanted Sept 8th and thus far my recovery has been easy. I've learned a lot from many of your posts and experiences. The one thing I've yet to see is, did the implant surgery impact your appetite? I've been so hungry afterwards almost to the point that I don't ever feel full. I'm eating the same amounts that I did pre-surgery but I just don't feel full. I do eat gluten free but pre-surgery I would feel my hunger satiated. I'm not craving anything specific, just hungry. I really don't want to overeat and gain weight. Curious to hear if others experienced this and what could be the cause?
