So I had the electrophysiology procedure yesterday and they were able to replicate the fainting episode and they had to shock my heart.
Their conclusion is that I need an implantable defibrillator.
I REALLY have my doubts about this.
I’m ready to say to hell with the whole thing.
They said I have severe heart disease and coronary artery disease and some other crap.
I go see my cardiologist tomorrow but I know he’s going to agree with the hospital.
I’ll wait until I see my family Dr next week to make a decision because I trust him.
This whole friggin thing seems like a bad dream.

Get the procedure done Smokerman..


I'v had a double bypass and angioplasty a few times now, my Dr has me awake but oblivious of most of the procedure.. it's nerve wracking but you'll be out enough that you shouldn't be moving/thinking anyway. Just let him know of your stress and he should be ethical enough to make you comfortable.


Last spring my Dr brought up a debib also.. I was able to bring my extraction fraction up above the 30% threashold with exercise and upping my activity. He also upped my meds.


Give yourself a chance, your in my prayers.

Talked to both my cardiologist and family Dr about defibrillator implant and they both said I should do it, so I’ve decided to go ahead with it.
Hospital is going to set it up.

Here in Ontario the nurses are negotiating a new contract and recently walked away from the bargaining table. Nurses said there would be no job action, but I heard from a few people that things are bogged down a little in the hospitals.
In my opinion nurses are overworked and under paid anyway plus hospitals are trying to cut costs making nurses workload that much more.
I have the utmost respect for nurses considering what they have to do.
So if it slows things down a bit and I have to wait a little longer, so be it.

mellon is on a distinguished road
Here's something related to the thread topic. Cannabis can induce atrial fib which is treated by ablation. I was cardioverted out of atrial fib and then about 3 years later I took a tolerance break and when I went back to smoking I started with my previous amount, it was too much, and I had an uncomfortable night. When I woke I was back in atrial fib. After being in AF for 6 months I had an ablation which gave me a regular rhythm and a few months later I over did the weed again and when I woke I was back in AF. There are scholarly articles associating cannabis use and atrial fib, Google it.
