Tremendous help along with meds.
The first VNS pacemaker was donated to me by Cyberonics and they gave me a defective pacemaker the second one Mediciad and Medicare paid for and works 99% of the time so you are talking to 1999 recieptant and I would not be a spoke person for them because t did not work the first time they wanted me to lie and I said no.
