Nerve Conduction Test
The hand surgeon for my severe carpal tunnel syndrome is insisting he does this admittedly horribly painful on pacemaker patients with no problem. But Medtronic told both me and the tech who also called that they would prefer I not do it, or if unavoidable, have a pacemaker tech with me! (I'm completely pacemaker-dependent; have had a pacer for 20 years -this is my third; am 76.) I'm also fearful because once during a pacer check, the tech hit the wrong line on the screen and I began to lose consciousness instantly.
Please help, anyone who has experience with this situation; I'd be grateful for your input in any direction.
You know you're wired when...
You trust technology more than your heart.
I feel so blessed to have this little gem implanted in me. When I think of the alternative it is quite overwhelming sometimes.
