    How long for ICD to settle in chest?

    Hi. I am only 8 days out from an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator in my chest. It happened quickly, but I became convinced that my ventricular tachycardia was going to lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. It was tough to accept, as I had few or no symptoms.

    Anyway, they took the bandages off today and said I could live without the bandages now. However, the bandages were holding the ICD pretty securely in my chest. Now, the ICD feels loose and wobbly.

    For ICD patients, how many weeks (8-10?) before the ICD settled securely in your chest? Many thanks.
