Praying regarding your PG and the stuttering, AND the ESCALATION the company needs to seriously take regarding your implant. You put the finger right on the center of the target with the illustration since this technology is live implant into living beings the product itself should be out of the box perfect from the get go. There is no easy switch out of video cards or monitors on your bodily application, so there should be NO ROOM FOR DEVIATION ON SPECS OR APPLICATION, if the company requires a disclaimer signoff among your surgery papers [pull them out and rifle through them looking to see whether they required you cut them loose on the dotted line], then before the implant began, a serious indication was given how they would stand behind it.
This entire scenario is beginning to resound with a clanging of bells in my head as I contemplate personally the means by which each of us is "asked" to sign off on the forms. My experience now that I contemplate it seriously?? First one is gowned in the Reveal All 2012 hospital attire, one size fits all sizes and genders; followed by the "here is an IV with saline" so there is a rockin ready way to easily administer meds and anesthesia; followed by a shot of antibiotics then a "little something to help you feel more at ease;" followed by a last "please sign here, here and here" before one is whisked to the OR. Why did I go through all of this? Because I presently remember absolutely nothing other than taking pen in hand and scribbling...... not the kiss goodbye with my wife, not being wheeled to the OR, not arriving in the OR, not the awakening in the recovery room, and not the travel thence to my beautiful private hospital room [it was very nice, and so were the attentive nurses].
First thing I remember is awakening "sort of" to the motion of spooning soup into my mouth as I sloshed it all over my brace because I was so "out of it." I do not remember one whit of what I signed. Does this ring true with anyone else?
How about that? I cannot remember things. I realize this is part and parcel to the phenomenon of general anesthesia...... but going back a couple years into my past then to attempt recalling whether I signed anything for Boston Scientifc, I have absolutely no clue...... and this is from one who has been a litigator and litigation manager senior partner. ARGGHHHHH! There goes that pirate in me again....
Huh, so what if???????????????
Even so Andy, I pray for you and your sweet wife regarding this issue, and I am so hopeful your issues will all abate, the stuttering stop, the Pulse Generator do its thing properly, and your Rep make an about face and "go over their own head saying 'folks we have a need to fix a problem for Andy here' " as such are my prayers for you, brother.
