Hey Stray, sorry to be a pain (again the pun), I wonder if you would know where I could donate the battery pack that is not at all useful to me, but maybe could help someone else.  After the surgery, everything that came with it became mine.
 
I tried to give it back to Medtronics, but they say its mine. so if you know where I could donate it and it would be useful to anyone else, I dont want to carry it around from place to place, we are moving Aug 20, then after my daughter and new son in law have saved enough money (about 2 years) we will be moving again to a house.
 
So I do not want to carry it around, but it was expensive and I would like to know if anyone could use it.
 
Thanks, hope you are feeling well,
Kathy

Kathy, have you searched the net to see if there is any place that may accept it? Off the top of my head this is the only thing I can think of at the moment. Sorry, I really am of no help on this. if I come up with anything else about I sure will let you know.

Have you tried a teaching hospital? Or even ask Medtronics if they could suggest where to donate without holding them responsible? I'm sure that's one of the reasons they don't want it back. When I got mine the paper work said "we are not responsible after one year of surgery date". Good luck.

Thank you kat, its funny isnt it, they sell this whole thing like its the best thing since, well whatever that saying is.
 
I remember when I first met with the reps from Medtronics, they reminded me of used car salesmen.  Sorry about the stero-type, but it was full on sell, sell, sell, then once its bought and paid for, they are not around so much.  The first appt. I had after my first surgery, after it was healed, which didnt take long.  The rep who was in my face constantly prior to agreeing to have the surgery, didnt even show up for my first "lesson".  Like his time was more important than mine.
 
I had a real bad feeling after that.
 
Thanks for your input, I will check it out.  Take care and hope you are feeling well today.
