There has been a lot of talk about ICDs/Pacemakers on HeartConect lately. If you have a Fidelis ICD from Medtronics you should read this report.

Anyone out in our community had any experience with the Fidelis ICD? We'd really like to here what you have to say!

Thanks for the update HH! I checked with my defib doc and mine are ok. I don't have this. I worried after my leads came loose. Dad is holding his own waiting to get stronger for open heart surgery. Still in ICU at the VA Pgh Hosp.

Yes for me anyways. Now my son has costochrondritis. It has been acting up the last few days. Mostly at night time. Wish there was a community on that one and my dad I hear is to have some kind of valve test today. I do not have a clue what that is about. I am hoping that my son is good enough to go to school today with the chest pain and that I can go to the hospital. If not I will have to wait for a call from the hospital. Trying to let the son sleep as long as I can before school. Idk anymore.
