Tomorrows the day! The third lead of my Medtronic device has gone dead and my EP will open me up tomorrow to see what he can do. This third lead has not been in an optimal position ever since an EP at TCAI installed it back in 2012. It's been eating up battery life and has gone "dead."
EP hasn't made any promises, since it's a tricky procedure. Replace the lead and leave the old in place or not? Or do nothing? We'll see!!
You know you're wired when...
You need to be re-booted each morning.
My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
