Read your post last night and that you mentioned your battery going low, not sure what model you have but you should read the link below and check yours.

I also have a medtronics PM, that is on the list….the last time I was at the cardio docs office, not a soul there knew anything about this fda warning until I handed to them….I actually had to force them to set up mine so it reports the battery use every 30 days….If I were to see a drop on battery life I think I would have to insist on changing this out. at their expense of course…good luck hope all works out for you…..

Just a FYI, I see the mention in most all conversations here the loose term that " the watchman prevents blood clots" which is true, however IT DOES NOT HELP OR PREVENT BLOOD CLOTS IN THE REST OF YOUR BODY, ONLY IN YOUR HEART. just something to think about.

Dec 6, 2019 · Flutter - Pradaxa vs. Aspirin in Heart Rhythm Conditions

It is an interesting read, deeper than I can discuss as the study is really about re occurring strokes, and I am not a doctor, you did not mention that you had a stroke involved, all that being said I have been on pradaxa for a year and half now, thankfully no problems at all. and it seems as though you have been on it for 4 years now,,,, my thoughts would be not to rock the boat and continue with you care plan for the last 4 years…..
