some info for you ICDers
i will be having surgery shortly and thought this might interest the people who are implanted with the dual pacemaker/defibrillator.
normally they turn off the defib. for surgery with the magic magnet and i was curious if this also affected the pacemaker.
i called up St. Jude, my implant, and they informed me that it will not affect the pacemaker. just one less thing to worry about that i thought i'd share.
just one last note: i must say it certainly woke me up reading all of those capitalized words this morning. never a dull moment
You know you're wired when...
You have a little piece of high-tech in your chest.
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.
