A little disturbing.......
It's been a long time since I posted.
Was in to the Pacemaker Clinic on Wednesday and the printout revealed that my pacemaker had 'stopped' three times (for short periods) last August.
My Cardiologist looked very concerned, I'm 100% PM dependent, and asked 'where were you last August that had a very strong magnetic field?'
Guess he was going to tell me to stay away but the only thing I could think of was that I was at that Hospital having scans/tests, as they thought I had Gall Bladder/Common Bile Duct cancer.
I told him that maybe I was too close to one of their MRI machines while waiting for my CAT scans.
Now, I was so surprised that it 'stopped', that I didn't think to ask any questions.....kind of gobsmacked if you know what I mean.
Apparently, it was some sort of 'sound' interference but he looked worried and started talking about adding the third lead to my pacemaker, reassessing my hearts' function at my next appointment etc.
I've had time to think about it and am both perplexed and worried.
Can anyone shed any light on this for me?
I thought these 'cadillac' pacemakers were supposed to work very, very well. I'm so rattled, I can't recall the kind I have....but it was 'cutting edge' a year ago April.
