I am wondering if due to lockdown and the coronavirus if i might be better of having the housekeeping turned off in my pacemaker to save the battery for a few more years. The hospital is not checking up on my pacemaker any way . They did not give me a check up when one was due and I waited a few weeks having heard nothing from them as to what was happening. I called them and was told that i would get an appointment in three weeks time. three weeks passed and no news from them. So I phoned again and they said it would be three months. who are they trying to kid ? I am a bit woried that when it is due for replacement they wont bother. I am 101 % dependant on my pacemaker having had a AV node ablation. I can see no point in the housekeeping being left on as it uses up to 50% of the battery. All replies welcome. Peter
You know you're wired when...
Your signature looks like an EKG.
I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
