CRT-D for Low EF
I had a heart attack 13 years ago (49), took about 6 months to start feeling right but heart rate/blood pressure always remained low, like high 40's low 50's and 100/70. Year after year Cardiologist never said much other than things looked great. Had a near-syncope 4 years ago while eating breakfast. Put on Holter and after 2 weeks recorded another VT, it stopped spontaneously in about a second and I felt momentarily light headed. Echo, stress test, catheterization, EP test and ICD within 36 hours. Dual lead, Boston Scientific D142 and 80 mg Sotalol twice a day. They set my heart rate to 70 BBM to reduce likely hood of VT. The past few months I've been feeling slightly light headed and not so great but could still excerise and play golf so didn't do anything. In August 2021, got stung by a hive of bees and went into anaphalaxis. They did EKG in emergency room and Doc told me I had LBBB. At next cardio appointment they did an Echo found EF <= 35%. Put me on Entresto but I can only tolerate the beginner dose. On treadmill test, LBBB kicks in at 80 PPM. Now they want to put in another lead and pace left ventricle. Since Nov when I started Entresto I've had day's where I feel pretty crappy, light headed, fatiqued. Cardiologist says CRT-D might do the trick. Can anyone relate to this and share their experience?
