Pacemaker replacement problems
Had my first Medtronic 2-lead pacemaker implanted on my birthday (lucky me) in 2009, and had it replaced the day before Thanksgiving in 2019. Instead of the old style transmittal device, I was issued the new Medtronic wireless Home Communicator. I have experienced problems with breathing and sleeping since the new pacemaker was implanted. Yesterday, I unplugged the thing and have felt better since then. Tomorrow (Monday) I'll talk with my doctor over the phone to try to reach some resolution to this problem. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Since the pacemaker implantation I have had 2 visits with my cardiologist and he says the pacemaker is working perfectly. I feel better when I am outside and/or away from my house (and the Communicator).
