one lead not hooked up
im new here, and thankful for this site,...its good to get other patients opinions,...i have a 3 lead pacemaker, since 2015, and my dr, says almost time to change battery,....im very worried cause i had a huge hemotoma after implanted after open heart surgery for valve repair,because i went into complete heart block...but since then always wonder and ask if its ok that a third lead is not attached, my dr, kept trying to say there were only 2 leads, and i wonder if i would feel less sob, and fatigue from heart failure if the third was there also,....and are the updated pacemakers more efficient, can you change them?,....im getting a second opinion this week,....thank you
You know you're wired when...
You prefer rechargeable batteries.
It becomes a part of your body just like any other part.
