Hi There - I wrote in several weeks ago about a problem with my defibrillator. As it turns out, it is not infected, but has come out of the subpectoral pocket and is pushing through and a point of it is quite clearly just under my skin. It is causing me a lot of pain and numbness in my arm. I went to see my EP and since it is not infected, her response to me was to "deal with it" until it is ready to be replaced in approx. a year or so. I was quite upset with this response and don't know what to do at this point. I would like to have it removed sooner than the year time limit at this point. I would very much welcome any suggestions you may have for me. Thank you as always for your input and support.
