Update on multiple allergies to pacemaker and leads
I'm a 62 yr old female, I could really use some support. I just got out of the hospital on December 24, I was being treated for reactions for my allergies, as my neck/throat is swelling. They want to remove the pacemaker and leads, but I'm 95% dependent on the top lead and 5% on the bottom lead. I also have some fluid around my heart now that I never had before. They can put in a gold plated pacemaker, but they have found no replacement for the 2 leads. Not anywhere in North America or Europe as of yet. I felt like I was I Grey's Anatomy as the residents came to see me as most had never heard of a case like mine. I started to give them all nicknames just to keep my spirits up. I do know there are others out there like me. I was wondering if anyone would share their opinions or solutions if they found any on the leads. Thank you.
