This is my first post.
I am scheduled to have a CRT-D implanted on September 15th.
I have a couple of questions and would appeciate any and all advice.
I am curious about other's experiences with how they controlled swelling/pain after surgery. I have aslo read numerous comments about avoiding frozen shoulder issues afterwards. Perhaps someone could offer some suggestions about range of movement and "gentle" excercises. I would also be interested in hearing about whether or not one experiences improved energy levels and apporximately how long before they have noticed the improvement. And finally, if anyone else has a CRT-D, would they minding sharing how long they have had it?
I have read many postings on this forum and was struck by how supportive and encouraging everyone was. I am impressed by the wealth of practical knowledge and expreience insight so many of you are willing to extend to others experiencing difficulties. Thanking you in advance.
