my roomy is in place
My CRT-D Biotronik 3 leads was installed on Friday.
Today, on Monday, my skin is still sore, as is the muscle beneath.
I was hoping the device would be smaller, and less visible, but it is what it is.
I am happy to have found out that my strapless bra is mandatory for me. Having a large size, I feel relieve when I wear it.
After the surgery, I had a bad experience with the morphine they gave me. I had a local anestheasia. I had bad nausea and nearly fainted while getting out of bed
I am a bit frustrated that the next appointment is in 3 months only. I don't understand how my FE can be monitored without an ultrasound...
I was at 15 %, in November, and managed to go up to 27%, but that s all...
I am intolerant to the specific heart drugs (such as Entresto - horrible side effects ), And I can't really say I already feel better.
Still dizzy, still coughing quite a lot, but that could be because of the temperature during the surgery.
They said it would take less then an hour, but it took around 2,5h
Wasn't very pleasant experience, but necessary for my dilated left ventricule and the heart failure that came with.
I'm not sure how long the recovery will take, how long untill I will be able to drive etc..
Will keep you updated..
Ps happy to have found this site
