Re: Welcome PFARGO (Patty)

They could not find any reason for cardiac arrest and are looking into possible genetic heart disease. Funny thing is I have no knowledge if family with heart disease. I just want to be able to return to my life without thinking I am living on borrowed time and wondering if I fall asleep will I jus...

Re: Question about first ATP

I believe the only persons to really answer is your cardiologist's tech person (the one doing interrogations) or your device rep. Every interrogation I get usually shows a few "un sustained" quick beats and a time. I've never been able to correlate those times to any fixed time to know. Like I got ...

Re: Question about first ATP

Our ICD do not know what daylight savings time is so if your implant was in the summer it may be off 1 hour in the winter. Mine was that way. I had a February implant so it was noted in standard time all year long. The time of the event should have been noted in your download report, as well as the ...

We do have a few members who have taken on limited roles to help us keep going, but we still need a little more help. We are not talki...

Re: OT-Update on Freckles

My social worker was here on Tuesday. He seemed to hint on his last visit sort of a time to expect. I tried to push him some. It's not that I want to go today, although I feel about ready, it’s just that I would like some guidance of what to expect next. I know the nurse has also hinted some. There ...

Re: Welcome PFARGO (Patty)

howdywelcome :armdown: For a while until the doctors tell you to raise it. Do use the arm though. I would hope that the doctors did run some tests and explained what was going on with your heart. There are so many reasons we have these issues. Yes, I am sure your implant area will feel tight for a w...

Re: Update

Sorry for your issues Leah. It appears that there are so many things going on right now that it is hard to say what is wrong with us.

Please start to feel better.

Re: Flu Season 2018-So What R U Doing?

I met with my social worker yesterday and he noted that all of the nurses he works with cannot visit any patients if they (the nurse) has any cold or appears sick. Some of this seems just a little late. I still don't understand why they are not coming up with a new SHOT.

When I was 21 it was discovered that I had a bad mitral valve so I had to have surgery to have it repaired. Even after the repair and the doctors told me I would feel better I still didn’t ...

Re: ICD unnecessary shocks

1. Some years ago I met a patient who was receiving unnecessary shocks which he described as blasting him across the room. (hopefully this is no longer an issue) 2. My pacemaker indicates that my heart is responding well to medication. Under the current circumstances the probability of a necessary ...

Re: Flu Season 2018-So What R U Doing?

This whole flu thing is scary. Ozchrissy brought it up many months ago that they were having the issue in Australia. Seems like we could have worked on a better solution. Locally they are telling us to get the shot anyway. I think they want to use up the old supply. Don't shake hands, stay away from...

Re: ICD unnecessary shocks

Word on the street is a Jesus Jolt beats dead every time. I'm not so sure, have you seen the stock market today? It has been heart stopping, but. I have been through this type of action a few times these last few years and as they say, don't look at today, look at down the road. I just hope it does...
