Just take a deep breath...

I haven't had to have my pm replaced yet, but you sound so afraid that I just wanted to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm sure some of the folks here will let you know their experience. I have read lots of postings on this site and everyone is very supportive and kind. Please take care. Patsy in Texas

New Pacer

If you are just having the pacer unit replaced it should be no big deal - it's when they start messing with the leads when you get into trouble. I am on my 4th pacer. The surgeries where they just replaced the unit were a breeze, went home the same day, back to light exercise 3-4 days later. Lead replacement is another story. You should be fine!

PM replacement

I had my 2nd PM put in 3 yrs after 1st & sigle lead taken out & new one put in (different spot in ventricle wall). All went well & stayed overnight. Hope yours goes as well as mine did.

My prayers are with you on your replacement. Stay positive even though you are scared. Your healing will take as long as it takes - give yourself time.
