i am due to go into hospital to have my pacemaker taken out and the leads extracted. I won’t go into the reasons now. Too complicated. I am however, going to have a new pacemaker put in and new leads both atrial and ventricle. Has anyone out there had this done? I am aware that it can only be done by a doctor who has done this procedure before. I am extremely anxious about this. I am having a general anaesthetic.
comments and reassurance please. No scary stories- I’m scared enough!

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
