Relapse or Lead Dislodgement
Been posting and responding quiet frequently on here, but have a question on the after effects of surgery. I am on my 2nd devise. First was a dual chamber PM, and I had that for only 3 years. Now I have a BV / ICD and am on CRT continuosly. Was feeling pretty good until this morning when I almost blacked out at work. After that I was cold and tired the rest of the day, and looked visably tired when I looked in the mirror. I originally had byacardia for the first PM, and then went into cardiomyopathy with very low EF's within 3 years. My in home monitor still says ok, and the doctors office has succesfully checked out the monitor. I am wondering if I have a dislodged lead, or if the wires are interfering with blood flow and back to the heart, or if the wires causing other problems? I am 6 weeks post surgery. Has anyone had a lead dislodge, and if so, what were the signs or symptoms? Also, any strange feelings after recovery? Thanks.
