medtronic recall leads
I have posted on this subject before but am still wondering what to do as I am hearing (from doctors, friends, news and here) that more and more people are experiencing problems with medtronic fractured leads. As I no longer have insurance, I am anxious about how I would pay to have a lead replaced and how dangerous it would be. The person I spoke to from medtronic didn't seem to want to help out at all and I am strongly leaning toward filing a claim against the company. No, it is not what I want to do but I am listening to the stories of what people experience when their lead fractures and I am becoming very worried and want it exchanged for a safer lead.
I am only 48 and am hoping this unit (as well as myself) will last for awhile. Has anyone else thought about talking with the lawyers and making medtronics take responsibility?
