My new ICD
Hi there. I have now got a new badge of honour. Yes, my Medtronic ICD was implanted successfully on July 4th 2007. I am grateful to be privileged enough to have such a device, considering the need in this world, just for food for most.
I knew it was an expensive item, but the cost of Australian $55,000, just for the device no doctors or hospital bills included, nearly gave me a heart attack!!! LOL. Really I only found out the cost after it was in. Thank the Lord I have paid for the top most medical insurance all of my life since I began working in 1976, so my health insurance covers all the cost.
I feel well and have only trivial problems such as discomfort and some swelling still. I can't walk my dog yet because he is too strong at around 40kgs and would pull my arms out and I might pop my ICD!!!
Thank you for the advice on here and the support. And when I say heartfelt, I do really mean it.

I'm a runner, mountain climber, kayaker, snow skier, bicycler and scuba diver. The only activity among those that I'm not yet cleared to do is scuba diving, and when I am cleared, I'll be limited to diving to 50 feet.
