Just wondering if anyone else here is in a similar situation to me.
I was really poorly in 2002, my heart failed and i was on ICU. Dialated Cardiomyopathy was the diagnosis i was given. Leter that year i had two ablation procedures performed but to no success. I actually ended up with burns on my back - has this happened to anyone? I then had my pacemaker fitted. I work in a hospital and see my technician around quite regularly, on thw wednesday i asked when she thought i may need my pacemaker changing and she said my type of pacemaker lasts 10 - 15 years. I had my check up the day after and was told i would need it changing in the next month. Should i be worried that my pacemaker hasnt lasted as long as most?
Also, i have a huge fear of it being changed - Does anyone know exactly what they do? Im terrified :-(
You know you're wired when...
You read consumer reports before upgrading to a new model.
I am no expert, but I believe that without the defibrillator that I have, I would be dead.
