cardioversion or defibrillation
I had my first "kick" this week. I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow. How can I tell if it was a cardioversion or a true defib? I'm pretty darn sure it was the defib but am now questioning myself. I went down in a faint fast,which I have never done,had a kick which was dreamlike,,then another kick. Afterwards,weak and wobbly with a prickly feeling across the top of my chest. Anyone have anything like this before?
You know you're wired when...
You can finally prove that you have a heart.
The experience of having a couple of lengths of wire fed into your heart muscle and an electronic 'box' tucked under the skin is not an insignificant event, but you will survive.
