Pacemaker Needed

Recommended Posts

dang!  Pretty soon you will have to have an electrician on your medical team!  That's some big ol' hunk of electronics!

Saw the pacemaker rep again at the Dr's office. He ran more tests, experimented with settings, etc. He said there was a lot of "noise" on one of the leads (especially when I moved my arm while he was monitoring it). That sounds to me like a weakness or a break in the wire somewhere.

 

Anyway, he turned off that lead and the twitching stopped! So, now I get to see how well I do with only one lead connected--good thing it's the one to the atria (upper chamber). Rep will talk to the doc about whether or not one lead (not coordinated dual leads) will be sufficient for my condition, otherwise I think they will have to go back in and replace the faulty wire. :/

 

Will follow-up with my regularly scheduled 3 month post surgery appt.

....... :tapfoot:   ..... wouldn't ya THINK they'd be extra EXTRA CAREFUL in quality control for parts that will be INSIDE a person's body? 

 

 :pray: that they FIX THIS and you'll have a lovely time living your life without docs/techs being your primary occupation!
