My 4th pacemaker change...and getting nervous
So I am 40 and had my pacemaker at the age of 14. I am due for my fourth implant in the next week or so and super nervous this time around as surgeon says the more often you change the battery, the higher risk of infection. He told me he rarely sees patients my age already going on their fourth pacemaker!!! So now I am freaking out...anyone else out there get their pacemaker as a kid and still going strong?
