I had triple bypass March 11th. My ef went down to 15 and has not gone up. They tell me I have a severely damaged heart and am lucky to be here.
My cardio and my heart failure Doctors both recommend a defibrillator.
Am worried since my EF is so low I will have complications or not even survive them putting it in.
Anyone have a defibrillator and also anyone have one put in with a low EF???
I have and icd and it is scary at times but will save your life if u are not close to a phone and are having chest pain will slow your heart down to save u from a possible heart at3
My EF was 12% a year ago. It is now 38%and rising.
I had a defibrillator/pacemaker implanted 9 years ago. It has saved my life repeatedly. God bless you.
My EF went to 20% and after the ICD it is now 36%.
I was not put completely under during the surgery because they did not want any complications and could hear the doctors and feel it slightly but am very happy it's there
