Hi i thought with the remote transmission that is set up in my home. Would not need to go to pacemaker clinic . Was suprised last week before thanksgiving, when i was called to remind me of my appt. on Dec 2nd. Mentioned to the caller that was sheduled for a transmission on Nov.28th. Which was sucessfull on Nov. 27th. She said that was why i was coming in. I thought it was for the cardiologist check up which whould have been nearly a 3+ month check up for implanted PM.
When i got there told the gal about transmission, not aware plus my information had not been transferred there from the EP's pacemaker clinic. Said now it is. Not sure this new location is being monitored daily. As this rep. for Medtronic is only there on the first monday of the month.
She then advised me i should be back to have her do another checkup 6 months from now. Of course that is 3 days before the scheduled transmission. Now have an appt for both the PM check and to see the Cardiologist.
Am being paced at 69%, with a battery life of 11.9 years. Not sure at 90 would be willing to go through that surgery to have battery replaced.
thanks for you help.
Had a fast heart beat that day, for 6 seconds, asked if i felt dizzy, she said must have been when asleep. The only thing i remember is an unsteady gait that morning.
Did ask about leaving for maybe 6weeks, should i take monitor or just visit one of the Medtronic pacemaker clinics.
Guess not been having any problems as no one has notified me.
