I would just like to thank you all for your advise/support it has reassured me, alittle! This pacemaker is a St Jude Identy ADx DR 5380, are they known for short battery life?
The only thing now is that I am worried incase it is a damaged lead that is causing the pacemaker to work harder and therefore use battery life.
My leads are the ones put in 10yrs ago ( with 1st pacemaker), wont they have tissue around them or be inbedded to the side of my heart or vein?
As you can tell I worry alot when it get close to replacement time.
Why cant we have a general anaesthetic then the anxiety may not be as high?
Once again thank you
