Hi there! I am a 27 year old woman who suffered a SCA October 24th, 2013. My doctors are not sure what caused it since every test on my heart has checked out so they are leaning towards a pulmonary embolism as the cause but can't be 100% sure.
My first question is... has anyone received the new S-ICD from Boston Scientific? This Friday I go in for surgery for placement of the device. I've searched the net for others who have this device but I haven't came across anyone. I'm wondering what others have experienced after getting it.
My second question is... has anyone else had knee pain after being shocked by an AED? I never had knee pain before this. I've had all kinds of tests done on them, x-rays, MRI, CT scan, ect. and everything came back fine. My doctor suspects the shock injured my knees and that they will get better with time. It's been a little over 2 months and they are getting better but very slowly.
Thank you all for your time!
