    I got my ICD replaced. I didn't want to bother with the magnet routine, and I am paced a fair amount of the time, so I didn't want to risk having the thing expire when I was out of town, or alone with my young son. I didn't want to have to think about it. How long have you had your ICD? Didn't you get it recently?

      I have a magnent for the time being. I will probably get mine replaced later in the year.
