Mon, Apr 1 11:16pm · Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I have had my Reveal Linq since November 2018. It was placed because I have history of palpitations, dizziness, and have fainted a couple of times. My cost for the procedure was about $25,000. And my monthly (yes, monthly) cost for remote monitoring is $376 (of which my insurance covers $74). I don't actually see anyone, and never hear what's going on. Does that seem unreasonable to anyone else? I haven't actually seen my doc, or a nurse, or a device tech since the week after the procedure, and I'm being treated abysmally by clinic staff. Also, does anyone else have pain? I can't even tolerate a thin scarf or cloth touching the site. I accidentally brushed it with my fingertips on Sunday and nearly threw up from pain. I wake up in the night, and all the nurse would say was "well, we implant these in 8-year olds and never have any problem." Advice is welcome!
