I just came back from a visit to my cardiologist. The recent echo test seems to have confirmed his suspision that I will have to have a personal defibrilator installed. The procedure will be done this coming Monday (10/10/06). If everything goes well, I will be released from the hospital the next day.

Needless to say I'm kinda noivous.

Well, if you have to have one, a personal defibrilator is the way to go. It would stink to have to have a shared defribilator.

"Hey, give it here."

"No."

"I need it."

"Well, I need it, too. Wait your turn."

The key word in your post is "probably." That's one of the things that worries me everytime I have an operation. ;)

With the way cardio technology is speeding ahead, I'm hoping they'll fit me with some miniature aparatus that would bring my fraction ratio back to normal by the time this thing needs to be replaced.

May I recommend taking a magic marker and writing "Don't forget your shit" on the side of your chest. I watched "When surgery tools get left behind" on the Health Channel the other day, and that would suck....

Good luck buddy!

Yep. It has a sensor that's supposed to sense arythmia. When it does it jolts my heart into normal rythm.

In fact the doc told me that part of the procedure monday is to deliberately give my heart a shock to throw it out of wack. Then they'll see if the device is working! Though I'll be out I don't like even knowing that.

I hope it's not painful when and if it happens. I haven't shown any sign of major arrythmia. So I hope I'll never have to use it. This is more precautionary. I'm not getting any younger you know.
