Question about low battery
I was told in Feb. 07 that my battery had 9 mos. left on it. Then the tech. person cut something off that extended its life. After that I have slowly been losing strength and ablity to walk very far. I was walking 1/2 mile a day and am not able to do that anymore.
Then one month ago, I noticed that I seemed to be getting weaker and weaker. I can't walk anywhere much at all, without feeling like I am climbing Mt. Everest. Then 1 1/2 weeks ago, I went further down and have an appt. scheduled for this Friday.
Is this just a battery problem? I have not heard any "beeps" the way some people say you have to hear when battery is out could it still be out of life?
If anyone has any low battery info. it would sure ease my mind and make me a little more knowledgeable going in to the Dr. I have had this pacemaker 5 years with no complications and it has worked great. No problems.
Thanks for any help you can give. Knowledge is power and I want all I can get.
