pacemaker too low
Hi! I have a female issue with my pacemaker. Had it implanted in Feb. of 2017. Over the months since, it has dropped a bit and is very close to my breast tissue. My NP has said that it IS a bit lower than usual and that I can have it adjusted, but that means another surgery. I have large breasts, and I think that their weight has played a part in this. My surgeon didn't take that into consideration, or he would have put the device much higher up. I am not overweight, so losing weight is not a solution. Does anyone else have this problem? I am getting concerned that it will drop even further and stretch the leads, to say nothing of future mammograms being difficult. Seems it's always something!
