I had a Medtronics defib installed 3 weeks ago. On the very left of the suture site, I can feel the entire edge of the implant. The far suture has also expanded and has bled. Is the implant coming out of the pouch it was installed in? I am getting my feeling of fatigue back again as well. It has been a week since my last visit to the cardiologist. Any answers would help. please.

Mark, it really depends, it could be that it isnt working properly - if you dont have alot of fat and are thin, you may see and feel the pacemaker. If not though, it could be a problem - either way, be safe and have your cardiologist check it out.

I have used for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

I ordered from for the first time and i definitely will again. Customer service is great! I inquired about my order as i had the wrong zip code on my mailing address and their customer support helped me right away. They were very helpful and also when you have any questions, they email you right back with answers. I would recommend them highly as they deliver what they promise!
