noise picked up 677 times?

Hi ,just wondering if anyone has had noise picked up from their leads inside their pacemaker? I was told I had 677 recorded events of noise in the last year. The tech said it could be a lead worn out or rubbing in my chest,not sure what caused this.

That is often the very first sign that a lead is starting to wear out. It can be an insulation rupture so the signal isn't getting through as easily, it can be a build up of scar tissue so it's not connecting as well, it can just be getting old. They will watch it. It can remain stable for years, mine lasted 5 years from the time they first told me there was noise until we replaced it.
