Inplanted Defibrillator

Inplanted Defibrillator

I recently was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy and my EF is 30. Taking meds to try to bring it up, but think I'm facing an implanted defibrillator and it freaks me out! I am wondering if people are glad about getting one or are there regrets? What are the challenges of living with one?

I Had An Heart Bypass By MIDCAB Has Anyone Else Had That?

I Had An Heart Bypass By MIDCAB Has Anyone Else Had That?

My bypass was done by a Mr Birdi (i think he was mr as appose to Dr) by MIDCAB which is minimally invasive. They seperate my ribs on the left side and take the mammary gland artery and fixed my LAD with that. So i only have one real incision in my chest and a couple of drains and nothing on my legs.
They say it is for quicker recovery. It also means not having to wire my chest back up.
