Hi. I have a Medtronic Adapta. Placed in 2010. (This is my second pm, but I'm finding the battery info a bit different this time around.) My battery life seems to be depleting quickly at this point. Last month it said 6 months. This month, it says 3. I was wondering if anyone else had a similar situation and if they could explain the schedule to me. From what I understand, this particular model will not beep or vibrate once it reaches the end of life, and as a single mom and a small business owner, I'd love a little time to (within reason) plan what to do once it's time for a replacement.
I guess my question is: once the three months is depleted, do I then have another 3 months to get it replaced? Has anyone experienced a jump from 6 months to 3 months in a one month time period? And if so, how soon after that did they jump to zero months?

I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
