ICD and altitude
Hi everybody ....I had an ICD inserted 3 months ago with no warning. The Dr admitted me immediately to the hospital after a stress echo and I recieved my ICD the next day.
I have ventricular tachycardia. I also successfully had cardioversion for AF while I was under the anaesthetic. I had no pain or problems and recovered quickly and felt really good.
Some weeks later I began to feel tired and have since discovered that I am in AF again. I am medicated with digoxin and carvedilol and warfarin.
I am hoping to ski at altitude (13,000ft) early next year but had severe trouble doing this last year, before the ICD. Is there a skier out there with my problems ? Will the ICD help ? I forgot to ask the Dr, I had so many other questions on my list!
