Hi there! I'm new to this group. My husband has ARVD and has his ICD since 2006... At 25 years old. It has given him therapy only once (thankfully it worked ... Although once was enough to give him PTSD), back in 2010, and he had Open heart due to complications excising a faulty lead later that year.
He's looking to change careers right now, and has always wanted to be a firefighter... Any firefighters with ICD's out there? Anyone become one Post-implant?
Thanks so much :)
