: I'm a 38 y/o female with MVP, cardiomyopathy, and last week learned I have V-Fib as well. I've had several heart related deaths at young ages in my family and it's very scary. My only option appears to be an ICD. If anyone can tell me anything about this surgery and the results, please do. What is the shock from the ICD like? Was the surgery a 'bad one'?
: I can't do anything that I love to do anymore and it's extremely depressing. Are there any support groups online? Thanks to you all in advance. REPLY I have just found a very good section of the Mayo clinic website which is headed Nutrition You just type in eg pork or chicken and when you reach the page , a number of suitable recipes come upYour trouble might not be gene related it may be that different families have different food preferencesyou might find someone from this board to write to each other and help each other
