Re: OT: viral video

Thank you so much Abas for sharing this. I am one of the 'me too' women, and this was very relevant. We have had a lot of publicity over here about the fear that women experience when venturing out and for their safety. We had a young woman murdered on her way home from work, and it brought on prote...

Re: multiple shocks

My first really memorable shock was 4 in a row. This of course scared me silly. Mind you I had been gardening prior to this and have moved a truck load of decorative rocks and pebbles into a garden bed, planted yuccas and other decorative plants. Came inside and then when resting, BANG, BANG, BANG, ...

Re: OT- Exciting times coming up

Thanks Leedur, yes it has made a big difference. Now that I have settled down I am really doing my research. Even had a talk with my GP today and he came up with some great suggestions that would be obtainable. Along the line of what I have already mentioned, and he does the GP Chronic Illness plans...

Re: Shock # 6

Oh Craig, I am so sorry to hear this. Lets hope they can tweek your meds and give you some relief. I really dislike the fact that as we progress with this Cardiomyopathy crap that we do get the added number of rhythm issues. Hope they can sort you out. Is the LVAD back on the agenda again???

Re: OT- Exciting times coming up

Thanks for the encouragement everyone. I have settled down, and busy making lists and also will try to get my ideas on one sheet of paper. Haven't had to do this for years, but it is slowly coming back. I realize I am very honoured to have this opportunity, so don't want to stuff it up. I spoke to t...

Re: CRT, pacing and PVCs

Sorry Dick, can't help you with that. Is it affecting how you feel. I normally will go with how changes affects my quality of life. Maybe someone on here may be able to make it clearer for you. Mine is also a Boston Scientific, and I love it. My atrium is pretty boring, no issues there.

Re: OT- Exciting times coming up

Thank you Ron, that is something I will start straight away. At the moment my mind is going haywire, I suppose some could call it overload. lmao4dx A list and documentation to support it all would be ideal. Thank you my friend time to get my brain organized and gather a structured approach to all th...

OT- Exciting times coming up

Hi all, well you all know I am involved in what is called over here Consumer Representation. It is becoming quite powerful over here at the moment. Every bit of planning and inquiry into our Hospital and medical systems have to have a consumer representative on it. Now some of these reps are now mak...

Re: CRT, pacing and PVCs

Hi Dick, I also have a CRT-D and mine has always only paced 98% or there about since insertion. 12 years now, on my second. I also get heaps of PVC's, in the 1000's each interrogation. I really don't see any issue with what is going on with you. As I said, I get 3 monthly interrogations, and I get a...

Re: OT-LOWER BACK PAIN

Thank you all for your advice. I am pretty good at the moment, have stopped the NSAIDS and just using the cream and the Panadol Osteo and it seems to have settled down. I have looked at the diet restrictions that you mentioned Jeannie, and thank you, I will adjust my food. My biggest issue is that I...

Re: Interesting NYT articles (heart failure, med costs)

That article is brilliant, it looks like they were listening in on our conversations, but like Robbo said, they do not give a definitive time frame. I have got the "there is nothing more we can do for you" speel from my cardiologist on my last 3 visits, (9 months) and I now realize that maybe he was...

OK Robbo, I can understand why you would pick the 26th December, over here it is a Public Holiday, Boxing Day, which is because on the day after Christmas the English Royals used to give out boxes of pressies to their staff on that day. BUT DON'T YOU DARE DROP DEAD ON THE NEXT DAY. It will be my bir...
