Only just noticed the check in request as I only monitor the posts every 1-2 weeks.
For me all has been very stable health wise over the past year and long may this continue. Sorry to read about the problems some of you have been experiencing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Hi Everyone,

I too am still vertical and doing pretty well almost 9 years post ICD. Had my second device fitted in November due to battery depletion, this time a Medtronic . Pleased to see many names that I recall from years ago still doing well. Long may that continue. 👍

Just realized my 7 year re-birthday is tomorrow. Yeah, I'm still around!
MI 1/21/11; SCA's 2/3/11 and 2/4/11
I have a Boston Scientific Teligen ICD and a Boston Scientific Promus stent,
I guess my cardiologist is sort of a BS kind of guy.

1) Don't sweat the small stuff!
2) It's all small stuff!
