this is my second or third device. first one was taken out I believe in 2005, then another can replacement in 2012. The only thing I don't know is if the leads from the 2005 one are the only ones or if they were abandoned and I have an old set from then and a new set of riata leads from 2012.InSync wrote: ↑December 2nd, 2017, 11:14 pmYes, St. Jude/Abbott is responsible for your lead. They should be monitoring it. Typically through your doctor, but it seems you haven't seen one in a while. I would have that conversation with them. At least ask for a remote download to check lead integrity. Which leads (pun intended) to a couple of questions. Did I miss something in your story, or is this your original device? Has it been implanted for 14 years? When was last interrogation? If it has been implanted 14 years, do you even know if it is still active?
I am fairly certain 2014 was the last time I saw any doc at all, for monitoring. Like I say...since I am destitute/indigent, they have tossed me aside as though I don't exist, never called me to see how the device is doing...much less me. I am officially injured in the shoulder from tossing boxes....and not too sure how I will work tomorrow.
