I'm a Dane living in the US. I got my first pacemaker in Denmark in 1993 at age 33. I'm now on my third (2013) and second set of leads. I'm being monitored once a month (remotely) and was told I have 2 months left on the battery that was10 days ago. My 2 prior replacements were emergencies. What I don't understand is why my doctor can't get me on the schedule for a new battery. Any suggestions on how to speed things up?
You know you're wired when...
You have a 25 year mortgage on your device.
I feel so blessed to have this little gem implanted in me. When I think of the alternative it is quite overwhelming sometimes.
