During the past week, a major Rhode Island attorney has been advertising for Medtronics patients with failed pacemakers and stimulators. Apparently he is preparing for a Class Action Suit against the company.

Has anyone else heard or seen advertisements in their geographic areas pertaining to this?

I am not an Interstim recipient, so this is more a point of curiosity rather than something in which I can participate. However, my Uro has been diligently pushing me for over a year to have an Interstim implanted. Because my IC difficulty is primarily the extreme pain, and Interstim was NOT developed nor approved for pain, I have successfully refused to have one implanted.

This is all I could come up with when I went to check it out.

I have seen ads here in WV - but I don't know if they were national or more regional.
