Moving position of pacemaker
I've had a pacemaker almost all my life and it's always been submammary.
I'm due for a battery change soon and have been chatting to my surgeon about changing the position of it. Reason being is I'm thinking about what the surgery and recovery will be like the next time it's changed over (maybe in 10 years time) when I'm a bit older and maybe not as fit as I am now.
Has anyone moved their PM from submammary/subpectoral to underneath the collarbone? Any downsides/upsides? It sounds like with a traditional PM the surgery and recovery would be a lot quicker?
I'd love to hear about your experiences or any advice you might have!
thanks in advance :)
