    Hi Kathy,
    We just got home last night from my husband having an ICD implant. He had it done Monday at noon and we were dismissed on Tuesday at noon. He already had a pacemaker, so the dr. only had to add one lead and change the device. He had some Tylenol #3 a couple times when he went to his room then he has had regular tylenol a couple times since then. We missed our flight home and took the 'scenic' way home by way of Dallas (we went over our home twice) and he only needed tylenol one time. I said that to say it was a long day and he only had mild discomfort. It is sore at the incision sight and he cannot lift his arm over his head for six weeks. I think the hardest thing for him is he cannot shower yet. I will also say we were advised not to have the ep study, because they are not beneficial for HOCM. I wish the best for you. Paula
