I switched cardiologist because he would only spend 2-3 minutes with me and he cancelled everybodys appointment that day and I made mine a month out. My new cardiologist spent at least 20 minutes with me and he was shocked that I was given an icd without an angiogram prior to surgery, he was not happy when no stress test was given. He stated he probably doesn't think I needed one however he made an appointment for me to have a stress test by the end of this month. Anyways my icd been in me since November 2020 my chest feels achy not in the center, on either side. My blood pressure is normal I was just recently diagnosed with gerd. It came about a month ago. Ever since I had this icd put in my way of life turned upside down.
All the doctors said I'm going to have a normal life, really? I'm afraid to eat because of the gerd, the nurse said it takes at least a year for a person body to recover from having it put in.
I just don't know what to believe.
