I had a biotronik closed loop system implanted for orthostatic hypotension. I had electric shocks and ten out of ten chest pain. Two ER visits, dr visit, multiple test and calls before they found out after two weeks that I had a punctured heart and lung. After 2 more surgeries one resulting in a chest tube with one liter removed I am finally home. Has anyone else experienced any of this. If you do make sure you receive echocardiogram and lung cat scan. Other tests did not pick up blood in epicardium or lung. My surgeon and his nurse both apologized.

Born to be Wired is your theme song.
I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
