Good Morning everyone!
three years ago one of my leads needed replacing. So another lead was fed down the same vein and malfunctioned lead was capped off. During the process I went into VF and was ‘zapped twice’ ...During the process I suffered a pericardial effusion! I’ve just found out that this second replacement lead is showing signs of malfunction! I am terrified! I have to go back in three months to see if the numbers have stabilized. I’m beginning to wish that I’d never had the pacemaker to start with but then I guess I wouldn’t be here writing this if I didn’t!
To sum up, I guess I’m looking for some reassurance....not scare stories as I’m terrier enough...thank you very much!
