Fell, should I have my icd checked?
I have been doing great, however, today while riding a bike I fell - my tires skidded. My left-side chest, shoulder, and arm hit the ground - luckily the ground was soft. Sounds dramatic, but luckily the only thing that broke was my phone holder - my phone and myself are completely fine. However, I am wondering, because I did hit my left side of the chest, the side that has an icd, should I have my icd checked out? It's Friday, do you think I can just wait for Monday or should I just call the on-call doctor? Thanks in advance!
You know you're wired when...
You have a high-tech ticker.
I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
