On Feb 21st,2007,my husband passed away. In June,2006 they implanted an ICD and a week later he got 5 shocks,one so bad he felt like it was going to knock him out of his chair. They put him back in the hospital & put him on Amiodarone.They sent him home and he started having trouble breathing. I kept calling his heart Doctor and he did nothing except a chest xray & said his lungs were fine. From June till Feb I was complaining to the doctor that he was having trouble breathing. He did nothing.

While on Chemo, I was put on Amiodarone for Atrial Fib. After chemo I wanted to get off of this nasty drug. Since then I have been on Propafanone, Flecanide, Tikosyn and 2 ablations, I am at the point of either another ablation (if I have the courage) or a pacemaker with AVNode ablation. The rock and roll effect of the AF has decreased quite a lot, so I am more comfortable, but the energy level and stamina is crappy. I would like to hear from anyone with a pacemaker or someone with similiar...
Hi, my name is Paul and I live in Austin, Tx. I just received my device 4 weeks ago (st. jude #365) and its been very difficult. I found this site and viewed some postings and see that I am far from being alone! My device moves when I lift my arm just like the other member was saying....phew glad to hear that. I must go find a job now, although I get tired so easy I am scared. I am glad that this site is here and I wish fellow members a hello and smile. Thanks for allowing me your time. Paul
Hi Everyone, WOW - this new website is fabulous but I am having a heck of a time using it. I feel very awkward, most likely because I could almost navigate the old site with my eyes closed (exaggeration). It will take a little time to get accustomed to the changes but the site looks very professional and is extremely well done. Great job, Blake!

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
