I went for my 6 month pacer check up a week ago. The Doc was happy that I had no dizzynes or passouts for the last 6 months. I Have Vasovagal Syncope. So I asked him if I could ride a roller coaster while vacationing in Las Vegas. He said OK as long as the belting system did not hit the pacer. So although a bit apprehensive I tried the coaster at New York New York. It has a full loop and a barrel roll that turns you upside down. Well all went very well it was great fun and I had no problems. It...

Having a Medtronic pacemaker myself, I became concerned, reading posts involving Medtronic recalls. I did a little research, and came up with this information.
The Sigma Series is the latest in a line of defective Medtronic medical devices; They include:
AT500 pacing system ( mine )
Kappa 600/700 Dual chamber ( D, DR, VDD.)
Thera Implantable Pulse Generators models 7940/41/42/50-- 8940/41/42/48.
Marquis DR model 7274 ICDs

I too am having a problem reading the comments on the posts. Is there some difficulty with the site? Are others also experiencing this? Thanks for any help!
I also can't see any comments behind posts. This started yesterday sometime~ has something changed????
I don't see replies (although it says there are 4) to My Active Topic question. What gives???
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 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.
Hello -- I'm looking into the "invisible comments" right now.
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.
I to am unable to read any comments. When cilicking on anyone's message it will show the number of comments but nothing else.
What has happened to the comments? I can't find them to read. There must be trouble on this web site. Judy
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...
How do we find out if there are new replies to topics from recent postings? Most forums have an "active topics" list. Am I missing something here? ( it wouldn't be the first time). LOL
I, too, have a pacemaker fitted for VVS! It's been about 5 and a bit months now and it's still settling in to its new home... The first month or so, the RDR feature was going off all the time - even after I sneezed!
At my last PM check, I had a fabulous technician who went through all the readouts with me. Apparently, mine is (on average) doing the work for my heart for 35 mins a day... Now I know this isn't much at all - compared to other people here who are 100...
I was just looking through some posts and read there was a lawsuit against Medtronic,is this so or just gossip? Smitty? Ted? Help. I am doing better but do have a little difficulty and have a dual Med. Any link? Thanks
Truly, your "strange" friend,
Hello all, just found out today that I need a bone scan. I asked my GP if it was ok to have with my ICD/PM. I was really shocked when she said I dont know if it will affect my device!
Needless to say I was shocked! Anyay this type of procedure is fairly simple, but it does have I think the same qualites as an MRI! Help did anyone have this done with there implant??
Much appreciated, Colleen
Hi - My toddler has a pacemaker for CHB. I am pretty sure she is going to need eye surgery to correct her intermitant exotropia. While I am not at all nervous about her having a pacemaker, and I am not concerned about the eye surgery -- the combination of the two is flipping me out. I am extremely upset. Has anyone had a surgery and can you tell me if special precautions are taken b/c you have a pacemaker?
