Re: New Technology

I did move the topic to the "In the News" area. There are so many new things being developed right now and it will be amazing to learn what will help us as time goes on. Thanks for posting this one.

Re: Good News/Bad News

I have been quiet on this one as it is hard for me to know what to say. Just keep aware of what is going on with your body and keep as healthy as you can. We seem to interpenetrate more than we need to at times and it can really scare us.

Re: OT-Update on Freckles

Thank you for the update Bob. It's good to hear that you don't need pain meds and can still get outside. I looked back through this thread and didn't see, or maybe just missed, whether you had the ICD completely disabled or if you left the brady pacing active. I think about you and your family ofte...

Re: OT-Update on Freckles

I believe you really meant to say you'd prefer a SCA, and not heart attack, which coincidentally is what our ICDs are specifically designed to prevent. I mention that as I consider the avoidance of SCA by virtue of an ICD to be the biggest negative of the device. I know you must be getting "your pa...

Re: Coffee

I would talk with your cardiologist as in many cases we can have a limited amount of coffee. My cardiologist is alright as long as I keep the cups limited and do not have any strong coffees. Teas may have a similar issue although I have not heard of any. We have a member on here who really likes Sta...

Re: New to ICD recommendations

Unfortunately there seems to be very few "local" support groups for those with ICDs. We get many requests for a local one is someones area but they are not there. We had one in Denver about 7 years ago sponsored by our cardiologists and hospital. It stopped about the time I was still learning about ...

Re: OT-Update on Freckles

This has been another up and town few days. Saturday and Tuesday I was feeling like almost nothing was wrong with me, other than I still have no strength. Sunday was a bad day and Monday alright but normal. I saw the social worker on Friday, the head hospice nurse yesterday and my normal nurse. Late...

Re: ICD Removal

What you are getting here is support. Some of us just can't understand some of the roadblocks you have had or appeared to have had. You have disclosed information that seemed to appear that you are being treated and taking certain meds, prescribed by a doctor. What some of us are saying is that you ...

Re: ICD Removal

I think you need to contact your county health and human services people. If you are destitute and cannot afford or do not have any coverage they should be able to help. Legal help is not what you need at this point.
