well my friend has a heart problem and she has to wear monitors sometimes but not for that long. mostly they want to see if it was just a one time thing or if it will happen again. i would vote for keeping it on, just to be safe becos if he takes it off and something happens, then they won't get the information that may help him.
He needs to tough it out and wear the monitor. It isn't that bad and if he does have a heart problem, it could pick it up. The first few days are annoying but then you adjust to having it with you. I've worn event monitors several times, a month at a time. No big deal. Better than having a cardiac emergency.
Agreed! I think I might take a mini-vacation out of here so I don't have to hear him complain so much about it, lol. But either way, I'm convincing him to tough it out and wear the monitor. Good advice --- thanks.
