Had implant November 2017, instant success felt really good, Went for an eight week after implant exhamination, was told I had used up approximatly seven and half years of expected life of the battery. Devastating news, consiquently the device was turned down to conserve the battery life, On later follow ups the device was turned even more, As a result for the past approx two years I have been having Heart Pauses when at rest this happens constantly when the pausing happen I get terrible chest pains, The only way I can stop the pauses is by actually getting up or moving about quickly, This problem may happen constantly sometimes I have to get up during the night just to move about some times I do not go back to bed. On two occations I have been addmitted inte A&E, one time three A:M. Has any other member experienced simular problems. On last visit to Heart Clinic the unit was turned to original settings but battery life would be only expected to last for a further three weeks, Again I felt GREAT again now had confirmation my next appointment would be six months time, Now started to have problems again.
You know you're wired when...
Youre officially battery-operated.
I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
