I take what seems like a pharmacy of pills each day, but am thankful they are there, and I can still pay my copay for them. Some of them are life saving, like my Warfarin and a couple of others. With Titanium valves in my heart, and an AICD-Automated Internal Cardiac Defibrillator, for those of you who do not know what that is-it is placed in my chest, hooked to my heart, to shock it if necessary, when the arrhythmia gets to be life threatening. Acts as a pacemker as well. The Warfarin keeps clots from forming on the valves, so there is less chance of stroke. ICD has been working faithfully since 2000-good insurance and fine doctors-thankful for them all. Went from no pills to about 8 a day!

Mine are next to my bed. There are just two..well if I took all I'm supposed to it would be about 4 and my doc just gave me a new one. So I asked him if it doesn't work and I don't take it is it life-threatening? No. How much do you want to bet it doesn't work? Oh yeah, unlike my mom, my wife, brother, sister in law think I'm not a lab rat so this is his last shot.

Thanks, but I have had the AICD since 2000-so that is 19 years about this time of year. Anyway, extra time I was given to see my grandson grow, meet my wonderful husband and marry him, and the only time the firing of the defibrillator scared me was the first time it fired. It is quite an experience, but now I know what it is, and am grateful for it-it shocks the heart back into a rhythm I can live with, literally. It is very similar to the paddles they use on TV when they are trying to get a heart restarted. Pushes you forward, feels like you got kicked in the back by a mule, and you stumble forward a bit. You hear the bang, taste the metal, and feel the kick and by the time you say "ouch"! it's over. The thing has to be changed about every 5 years or so-this is my 4th device. First time, I was out completely when they implanted it-net time, I was in la la land, next time same thing, and this last time I was completely awake, though tented so I could not see what they were doing. It is a day surgery-takes longer to prep for it than to do the procedure. Also have had some cardio catheterizations, with stent injection-two of those, and the last one was done through the wrist-wow-what a difference. Medical science has come a long way in just the 20 years I have been dealing with this stuff. No pain, just annoying!
