    Had one installed yesterday.

    Background:

    5x bypass surgery 2001

    Joined Mended Hearts and have been volunteer visitor since then.

    In June, 2019 had incident while driving where I lost vision in left eye.  Came back after 10 seconds.  3 days in hospital for brain CT and MRI, plus untrasound of caritoids and heart showed no stroke or mass.

    Then heart cath showed 2 main grafts open, other 3 blocked, but good circulation in all areas due to collateral bypasses.

    Cardiologist suggested implanting loop to record heart activity to see if there is unseen Afib or other abnormal activity.

    Anyone have experience with this?  Feel fine, but cannot lift any weight or exercise upper body for 4 weeks.

    Thanks for any feedback,
