“So when will I feel normal again?” That’s a question most people ask after a CRT-P or CRT-D implantation. The answer varies for each person. Follow your doctor’s instructions. Challenge yourself to find time every day to be good to yourself. That means being active and getting enough rest. It means reaching out to others and focusing on your needs.
Before long, you should be able to do all the things you used to do — perhaps even more. Some days will feel better than others.
If you feel a heightened sense of anxiety or depression that isn’t going away, talk with your doctor.
