I also wish I had some answers for you but this isn't something I've dealt with personally. We do have many members who have Medtronics so I'm sure some will be along for comments. I do hope you can get some help soon. One thing to consider is to contact the Medtronics company. Often medical related companies have funds for helping people who need it. Doesn't hurt to ask.
