St. Jude Defibrillator and pacemaker
Hello everyone, I had a St Jude Defibrillator and pace maker installed in Nov 2014. Never had a issue until yesterday. I was just at the cardiologist last week and checked my Defibrillator and stated I have a year/year and a half of battery power left. Yesterday I had a vibration when I sat down and thought it was the phone I sat on. Today it went off twice. Lasted 6 seconds and then after 2 seconds it vibrated again for 6 seconds. Called my cardiologist and he just told me to come into his office tomorrow. Does anybody know what causes this? Could it be a low battery warning? Or could it be a multiple of things?

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
