25 year old leads breaking down
Hey all, Ive had pacemakers forever and a day... that adds up to 45 years. My atrial lead is playing up, has noise on it at my last pm check and I was asked to do a whole lot of movements. Putting my hands in prayer position and pushing hard made my atrial tracking go haywire but I didnt really feel it
We have scheduled a meeting with the surgeon and a replacement for the following day so its getting fixed.
Today I thought I was going to die - I pushed myself up to move my position and must of replicated that movement, got a pulled muscle in my back that progressed to one of those almighty cramps and then I went into being sick, shaking, sweating and rapid heart beat, it was awful thought i was having a heart attack it only lasted max 5 minutes and Im still here to tell the tale.
Has anyone on this site with old leads experienced something like this?
