Turn it down?
My PM followup was transferred from the EP's office following the implantation and two appointments, to the PM clinic of my cardiologist's office. That's comprised of a Device nurse and a tech from the company, Biotronik. After an initial meeting in person, it will be via telephone.
The nurse called this morning and was more cheerful than I'm typically comfortable with. She said at our meeting she's going to "turn my device down* because I'm healed and it was turned up at implantation because while healing it requires higher settings. She said I don't need that much "electricity" now and we want to save the battery.
Here's the thing. For about two weeks, I've felt really good. I'm very concerned about changes when I'm feeling good. I asked if I don't feel as good, will it be adjusted? I think she said yes, but I'm not certain.
I haven't heard of this before. I'm not sure what "turning down" is. Do es this sound right?
You know you're wired when...
You always have something close to your heart.
Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
