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

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
