mri with pacemaker

Today had the MRI with pacemaker.  Medtronic tech came in a put in safe mode.  After came back and put me where the pacemaker should be at 60.

Found had another torn meniscus.   My second one in 2 years.  Guess will not be dancing the jig just yet.

Cold comfort but...

...at least you could have an MRI with your PM, and get the diagnosis so quickly.

Having someone make a hole in your knee, push in a fibre-optic scope and leave you hobbling around for a couple of weeks, just to tell you the same thing isn't as convenient.

Apparently there are some cool new, less destructive ways to treat a damaged meniscus, and perhaps one will be suitable for you.

Best wishes.

So good to hear about everything going exactly the way it's supposed to with an MRI compliant pacemaker!

Hope you're walking well soon.

You know you're wired when...

You invested in the Energizer battery company.

I am just now 40 but have had these blackouts all my life. I am thrilled with the pacer and would do it all over again.
