Hi my mum recently had a pacemaker op in Jan , she went in for her 6week check up and the dr could'nt find a rhythm. So she had to stay in hospital to find out whats wrong . She had an xray done and it turns out that the lead has ended up in a vein in her stomach . My question is , is it normal for a lead displacement to end up in a vein in her stomach ? Its vital that she has the operation soon as at the end of the lead there is a sharp point and because she is on warfrins , a small tear could cause a massive bleed . Im awaiting a call from the drs as im not happy with the results . Im aware that drs are not God and that there is only so much their skills and knowledge can do for them and us , and for that im greatful as i for one could never do their job as good as they do it themselves.Im just wondering if anyone out there has ever been in this situation before ?
