!0 years with a Ventrasist Lvad!

I have recently 'celebrated' 10 years of living with an 'antiquated' Ventrassist LVAD in the UK.

Life has not been easy with the heavy batteries and so on, but the 'behaviour' of the pump itself has been exemplary! 

We are getting to the stage where getting batteries for it can be quite difficult.

'Health-wise' I presently have heart failure once again, but that is not the pump's fault.

I have at least had ten extra years of life!

If anyone would like to contact me here, please do. Thank you.
