  • 1.  POLST with an LVAD

    Posted 12-08-2019 14:05
    I'm 81 years old and have been living with an LVAD for the last 6-1/2 years. I have a POLST in place but it predates the LVAD. I am past due to put together a new one.

    Is there anyone out there with this combination? I'd like to get some clue about how to make this revision. I tried in the OPEN FORUM a couple of years ago and got one response, from a woman half my age who had had a transplant following the LVAD-- not my circumstances. (Belated thanks to that responder!)
