Because you asked.........

Hello everyone.

Having a Medtronic pacemaker myself, I became concerned, reading posts involving Medtronic recalls. I did a little research, and came up with this information.

AT500 pacing system ( mine )
Kappa 600/700 Dual chamber ( D, DR, VDD.)

Left arm aches

Today marks the end of my fifth week with a PM. For some reason my left arm bicep really aches this evening. I may have done more than I realize, using it more than I realized. I've been feeling so great - now this. I noticed when I took my siesta this afternoon that I had actually, for the first time, rolled over to my right side. I don't think I affected the leads, my pulse continues to beat at 80 ppm. Has anyone ever had this kind of ache develop in a bicep??? Surferman

Fishing

Fishing has been a lifelong hobby and of course running a boat motor along with it. Now I will soon have an ICD implanted and wonder if I will be able to run the tiller boat motor or will I have to buy a boat with a steering wheel, in order to put some distance between me and the alternator on the boat motor.
Any other fishermen out there with experience?

Store Security

I walked into a store that I frequent the other day and set off alarms as I walked in and again on the way out. Now the store has had this type of security for some time and it hasn't been an issue before. So... I walked in again, alarms - and out again and... alarms! Out of curiosity, I spoke to one of the store managers and he told me that they had installed new security pylons and would check with the security company that did the install to make sure that the settings were not harmful a...

I too have been trying to access the comments from different avenues. No luck. One thing though, you stsated that it is post the number of comments inaccurately,I don't beleive that is so. It is adding up the posts correctly ,it is just not allowing the viewing of those posts. IO trieed it on one and counted to see if the amount of the posts would change and it did. Something happened with the processing of the post and when it is going through the "spam" part possible thtat it is storing info....

I posted a comment

I posted a comment on "Active Topic" message and the number of comments went from 3 to 4 ---but my comment didn't show up. Other people private messaged me and said the same thing was happening to them on that topic. (I originally posted that topic).
It's no big deal and maybe it's working now.

Comments

Well, I've tested posting comments from a number of different computers, operating systems, and so forth. They are going up without any difficulty. It seems that there is a bug in the code somewhere that is inaccurately representing the number of comments. I'm going to spend some time this evening and track that particular bug down and stamp on it. Firmly.

MEDTRONIC KAPPA 700DR

Hello to all and I hope your pacemakers are doing their job. I have a Kappa 700DR and I've never had a problem with this model. I know that your putting this information about lawsuit and defective pacemakers to inform others and I'm sure it's for a good cause, but you have to keep in mind that there are a lot of young pacers that just received their pacemakers. Many of them are pretty upset by the fact of having a pacemaker implanted. Their anxiety level must be really high and they probab...

Stomach Sleeping

OK. I've seen some posts back in the day about trouble sleeping and positions you sleep in with your pm. Pre-pm I always was a side sleeper (on my right side). Since having my pm implanted, I sleep SO differently! Differently meaning good and bad and just plain different than before. I'm all over the place! At times one position is comfortable then the next minute it's not.

Anyways...I want to sleep on my stomach from time to time (I used to do this pre-pm) but avoid doing so...
