Share - which illness led up to you needing a transplant?
I had heart attack in 2004 which killed the bottom part of the left side of my heart. A year later I got a pacemaker defibrillator. It was good until 2014. Then my defibrillator starting going off I had 295 abilations. That did not stop it so it still continued to shock me , I was flown to Austin Texas and they did 45 more abilitations. That fixed the shocking but damaged my heart so much a new heart was my only option. I received my new heart on October 21,2015.
