Opinions on medical jewelry
Hi everyone. I am looking for opimions on a topic of very little importance! When I first got my pacemaker, 3 months ago, I thought it would be a good idea to get a medical information bracelet. I figured that, if I experienced an accident or illness & was unonscious, it was important that medical personnel know of my pacemaker before doing certain tests or procedures. Now that I think about it, at that point damaging my pacemaker would be the least of my worries! Also, since undressing me would probably be one of the first things to happen, my (right now) very noticeable scar would tip them off. I figured I'd take the opportunity to list another chronic condition, COPD. Again, not sure how important that would be to know in an emergency situation. Information about my blood thinner is included as well, although I have never experienced bleeding issues.
I ordered quite a stylish bracelet--maybe my whole reason for getting one was to look cute(?). Now I find that it is not really comfortable to wear--the only wrist jewelry that I am used to is my watch. I don't think I will choose to wear it much. Does anyone think it is an essential piece of jewelry? Just curious.
