Getting a CRT-D Bi V end of month

Im Kris, 52, and I will be part of the club at the end of the month. I live in Atlanta and am fortunate to be getting this done at Emory. I have DCM and Lbbd and my ejection fraction is 40. I'm so tired and ready to feel better. Just introducing myself and so grateful for the support.

CRT-D

Welcome to the club, perhaps for now as a "provisional member". ;-)  I know you really don't want to be here but here we are.

My EP is also at Emory (Midtown). Great people, incompetent admins. Let me know if you need info.  Been going there for several years.

Thank you!

Thank you so much, Agent!  I really appreciate the support.

I hope you're feeling better soon

Nice to meet you, Lavender.  I hope all goes well with your implant.  It's great that you have time to prepare, although waiting can be hard.  Please let us know how it goes.  Lots of good advice here about making those first few days post-surgery a bit more comfortable.

Speaking of lavender, I have a nice small patch of lavender in my herb garden that my son planted as a child at least a dozen years ago.  It is beautiful and strong and keeps on keeping on!  (plus it smells good).  Anyway, this was just my way of trying to introduce an analogy to say "You've got this" :)

CRT-D for me too

CRT-D, just like me. Surgery in February of this year, but my EF was a lot lower (15%)

Hope you will do as good as I did.

You'll get a lot of answers here.

Good luck for your surgery

Hello fellow Georgian!

I hope your procedure goes smoothly!  I also am in the Atlanta metro area,  I am not at Emory however but I have heard wonderful things about their department!

You know you're wired when...

You prefer rechargeable batteries.

I've seen many posts about people being concerned about exercise after having a device so thought I would let you know that yesterday I raced my first marathon since having my pacemaker fitted in fall 2004.
