Rate Response change?
I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of a situation similar to mine. I have had Boston Scientific Accolade since May '21 after fracturing a lead with my Medtronic. I am a swimmer and my EP and I thought I would get a better rate response for that activity with the dual sensor. That turned out not to be the case and we concluded that only the accelerometer was effive in the pool, and that wasn't great. I was learning to live with it. About 3-4 weeks ago, I noticed a significant change. I am very uncomfortable in the water and it feels almost like it did when I broke my wire. My HR gets to the 70s-80s. Prior to getting the BS I would get to 108ish and with it I would get to 96ish. The difference is that I do not feel like this with other activities, jogging, biking, hiking etc. I can go to 130 which is my upper limit.
They had me come into the office and made some adjustments. They do not seem to be helping significantly. The pool is about the same. My EP says he has no further suggestions. I really like this guy but am frustrated with this response. They do not seem to be hearling me that something CHANGED! I feel like the accelerometer function is not working well. In land based activity, my breathing gets heavier and faster so I think the MV part is kicking in. If it's not the device, then it's me. I am written to BS but no response yet.
I would welcome any insight.
I would welcome any feeedback
