Pacemaker and lead extraction
At the end of this week I am scheduled for a complete pacer and lead extraction. This will be my second pacemaker, I only received my initial pacer 6 years ago - I'm almost 26.
I had complications with my first surgery (mini lung puncture) so I am definitely anxious about this upcoming procedure.
Has anyone gone through this procedure before?
Was there anything you did before or after to help with recovery and settle nerves?
Thanks so much!
You know you're wired when...
You play MP3 files on your pacer.
My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
