Hi all - Following on from a heart attack almost 2 years back followed by a number of VT episodes followed by cardiac arrests, I had an ICD inserted. I am also on a number of meds including Amiodarone, Toprol-XL and Entresto (amongst others).
I have had a number of VT episodes since the ICD was implanted but fortunately the device has quickly corrected my heart with no major shocks to date (touch wood).
My EP has told me that my device paces me at almost 100%. I am assuming that means the device is essentially running my heart.
On top of this, my latest VT episode was January and following this, my EP has suggested an ablation. He did say that it is a last resort as it would then totally have the ICD running my heart. Can someone please explain what this means.
Appreciate the forum.
