Pacemaker Thump After Adjustments
I had to go in to the Device Clinic 3 weeks ago to have some adjustments made to try to extend battery life due to some problems with a lead. The goal is to extend battery life a little longer and then do new pacemaker all at the same time. Since those adjustments were made, I'm feeling a thump from the pacemaker every evening about 8:30. I'm usually sitting on my back porch reading or watching Netflix at this time and since my house is so quiet and I'm being still, I can clearly feel it. It's like a little kick. It doesn't hurt, but I find myself waiting now for it to happen and it's irritating. I'm wondering if this is the diagnostic self-check the pm runs every 24 hours and that perhaps during the adjustments, the diagnostic check time got changed. Any ideas?
