First pacemaker insertion in April.  Leads came dislodged, had to have them reinserted 10 days later.  After that I have a feeling of another beating heart on my right side.  I have dual leads.  Cardiologist reply is, “interesting “!  Anyone else have this feeling?


Extra beats

I was bothered by the feeling of extra beats (on the left side by my diaphragm) after implantation.  The device technician was able to adjust the leads -- apparently stimulating the phrenic nerve.  No problem since.

You know you're wired when...

I am 100% pacemaker dependant and have been all my life. I try not to think about how a little metal box keeps me alive - it would drive me crazy. So I lead a very active life.
