I have recently seen an HCM specialist and I did like him but I have a question about his suggestion that I have a defibrillator put in. At the time that I saw the Dr I had not obtained all the facts on my grandfathers death. I was always led to believe by my mom that it was sudden but he actually had a history of heart disease and had gone to the Dr that day for pain in his chest. SO it actually wasnt the "sudden death" we thought it was. I have a gradient of about 2.5 to 3 ( I was told one number by the MRI technician and another by the DR). The Dr is insistant that I need a device even though I now have only one risk factor and little to no symptoms. He was even impressed by how well I did on the stress test. It was actually my legs that finally gave up, my heart rate and BP were good to go. What do you guys think?
