Fear of pulling a lead out.
As some of you know I got my pacemaker very recently. I am in constabt fear that a lead might dislodge. From day 2 after the surgery I went back to my normal activities except driving and excercising, I have also been very careful not to put my arm up or lift anything heavy. I go on long walks wirh a moderate pace and ride on cars as a pasanger.
The pacemaker is doing its job very well because from day 1 I felt the change, so I am much more energetic now.
But after learning about lead dislogement, I am terrified, I don't want to be in another procedure. And it seems that sometimes the lead can dislodge without any particular reason, maybe the doctor didn't screw it correctly or you just have bad luck.
Has any of you had a lead coming out of its place? Is the surgery difficult?
Thanks in advance.
