Would you care?
Long story short...
I had my pacemaker device changed in late June.
I had a lead extraction done at the same time.
My cardiologist has never done a lead extraction so I went to another doctor in another city to have done. Research and references from docotor all highly reccomended.
In my check up with my doctor, found that there is a possibility that the leads are plugged into the wrong sides. So, they are into my heart in the correct side and place but into the device itself, they might be wrong. So the right side is plugged into the left....and vice versa. If your doctor was telling you that this will not be a problem for your future and they will leave them as is, would that fly with all of you??
Simple question, would this be alright with you even if you were told that there should be no complications? OR knowing that it is not right be enough for you to be irritated??
Thanks in advance for all your comments :)

I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
