lead broke

Hi I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it is ok to leave a lead dangling inside. My heart defib shocked me 35 times within 18 minutes because my lead broke. Since this happened I have had muscle twitches all over my body and vibrations. I have seen a neuro for this but am wondering if the dangled lead inside could be causing some kind of electrical interference? Also just wondering if the lead should be cut back or not? One other time i had to have a lead cut down and another put in because I had one break awhile back also, but that was cut back. Thank you..Jenn
