3 more days...
Welp... After 10 years with my first pacemaker and set of leads (Type 2 Second-degree AV block) its time for Round Two! With two months of battery life left and 1 fully fractured lead and the other only half working January 7th is the day! Going in for lead extraction, new leads, and new device. During my first surgery in 2009 the device was placed Subpectoral (most likely due to my young age at the time) But that has now been shown to possibly have caused complications (such as my leads fracturing). So this one will be placed above the muscle. I'll have the noticeable pacemaker bump this time around. Hopefully I'll get used to it quick!
You know you're wired when...
You know the difference between hardware and software.
I've seen many posts about people being concerned about exercise after having a device so thought I would let you know that yesterday I raced my first marathon since having my pacemaker fitted in fall 2004.
