Husband is in surgery right now getting the Lvad heartmate 3Thu, 01/31/2019 - 2:01PM
My husband was diagnosed with CHF in 2014. In 2017 he had a stroke and his heart enlarged and as time went on, his heart health declined a lot. Last week, while I was pumping gas, my husband, son (5 yrs) and daughter (2yrs) were in the car and my husbands ICD fired. HIs ICD fired a total of 54 in 40 mins. The icd blew out machines in the ambulance. My son is traumatized by the whole ordeal. My husband is currently undergoing surgery for the LVAD heartmate 3.
What can I expect?
Has anyone experience thier icd firing with a lvad?
Will we, as a family, get our Patriarch back?
Thanks in advance for all your information and advice?
