Did they do this to you at Mayo? I probably need to replace my lead too and am concerned about having a dead one in the heart too. I think that pretty much all pacemaker users cannot be MRI\'d.

What happened to your lead? Did they leave the old one in place when they replaced it? I am facing the same issue.

I am not a transplant patient, but I do have stents and a pacemaker. So far doctors all seem to say just take whatever you are offered and even at Mayo they don’t know which one the clinic is using this year. I did the high does, non-recominant, trivalent. Quadravalent wasn’t available where I live.

I get a flu shot every year, but it is a fight to get the “right” one. As I understand it, there are at least eight types of flu shots this year: regular, regular recombinant, high dose, high dose recombinant and all of these are available in trivalent or quadrivalent. This makes it difficult for pharmacies and doctors and the CDC doesn’t seem to make a recommendation. Why does this have to be so complicated and how do I get a recommendation form Mayo for me?
