Complete heart block
My son was diagnosed with complete heart block at age 9. He got his pacemaker at this age. He has been ok until he had to have his leads taken out and replaced almost 10 years later. At 19. That was a rough procedure due to the tissue stuck in the wires. His surgery was done at Bostons children's hospital. We took him there because we heard it was one of the best. It's been almost a year 1/2 since the lead extraction and now his Ejection fraction falls between 40 and 45. I suppose this is from his pacing over the years. They are saying that if the numbers drop that we would need to consider Cardiac Resynchronization therapy meaning they would have to go back in again. I'm scared and wondering will he be ok with that procedure? Will he be able to live a normal long life? Does anyone know about this? Any advice would help. Thanks
