Hi , I’m a newby and I have a question about the lead wires moving around above my device . They seem to move pretty often causing discomfort . Medtronic tech acted as if it was all normal but I’ve not seen any posts on this . Anyone else experiencing this ? 


They move

I've had PM/ICD's (3 units) for 9 years.   I have to say I have felt changes with the position if the wires, no worries.   Like the comment above just best to not play with it.  I rarely touch mine. I have to admit it does take time to get used to having it.   I can say, I always know it is there.   With time it will all feel normal.

You know you're wired when...

Your signature looks like an EKG.

The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
