16 years of infection update

I've had my infection since 2002 looking like endocarditis still waiting for my operation. My pacemaker pocket is full of puss which burst last week leaving a hole in the centre. hopefully I will be getting the pacemaker removed soon. I also found out I have three veins in my heart. I was wondering if anyone else has heard of this before its called an AVM. They put a pacemaker wire in my third vein which is sticking through my heart and going into my lung. I'm awaiting open heart surgery at the same time as having my pacemaker removed as they need to remove the wire. My pacemaker has been turned off now and has been for a couple of months.

Please if anyone has heard of a heart  AVM pm me.


Heart AVM

Seems an AVM of the heart is exceedingly rare. I found some information on the web using "heart avm" as a search phrase.

As for my pacemaker (almost 7 years old) I like to think of it in the terms of the old Timex commercial - takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
