surgery and cardiomyopathy…has anybody had a surgical procedure while being treated for surgery and cardiomyopathy? I’m due to have surgery [3-4 hours] but the doctors seem a bit wishy washy, anybody been there?


I suffer from Heart Failure and have an ICD. I had my hip replaced last year. Surgeon obtained clearance from my Cardiologist prior to surgery and they disabled my ICD during the procedure. Hope that helps. Good luck


thank you
