    Hey Jim, glad you are on the mend! As was mentioned, listen to the Doctors, and do what you’re told!

      Finally got to come home last night <Wednesday> after on the insurance company to officially reject a piece of equipment I needed, then Medicare could jump into the picture.
      Three extra days in the hospital while paperwork is flying.
      It's a defibrillator vest that the surgeon wants me wear 24/7 except showering.
      But, i feel good and just want to get back to normal.

        Defibrillator vest, I have never heard of that. 24/7 forever? Why not an implant?

        I am glad that you are finally getting to go home.

            It is temporary until the ejection factor on my left ventricle is a little higher. I have a follow up echocardiogram after about 6 weeks, so that is why they skipped the implant.
            This is all because my system had a couple of very minor setbacks shaking the after effects of anesthesia. I was sedated almost two days because of the pump they had me hooked to.

                  Anesthesia is always a concern as we get older. The technology that is now available is amazing. Behave yourself!

                    My brother has a defibrillator. Right after his heart attack, it would send nightly readings to the doctor now it only sends weekly, unless something is wrong. It took 8 years for his ejection factor to go up 10 points and it is still below normal. Glad you’re home and feeling better.

                          Found this thread a little late, but glad to hear that you are home. Hope your recovery is quick and complete.

                                Doing good. Both my cardiologists seem happy. The surgeon has released me, but I am still wearing a defibrillator vest, until at least early December.
                                My son got married this past Saturday and my step tracker app showed nearly 10K steps and that includes a lot of time I spent in the easy chair just outside the reception area.
                                So, shortened version, I continue to listen to doctors, nurses and therapists. Hope to get back to work and finish training my replacement so I can complete my retirement.
