Wired for nothing
When I was brought to ER in 2015 I was diagnosed for getting a PM. Initial surgery went bad because my subclavian was crushed on both sides at one time in my younger life. They rescheduled and had a doc open it up to feed the wire. About 3 years later my wire was kinked and only one lead worked. They gave me a second surgery to put two additional wires on the outside of my heart. Problems again and only one lead works now. I have a different cardiologist now and he said based on my 1 percent usage he would not have put a PM in me. A discussion of the bullet wireless came up. I said no. So now I have four wires in my heart that don't function and a PM in my chest. I have an appointment at another hospital to get second opinion but not sure it will do any good. Has anyone had a similar experience?

A pacemaker completely solved my problem. In fact, it was implanted just 7 weeks ago and I ran a race today, placed first in my age group.
