100 % Pacemaker Dependent
In early Apirl I had my pacemaker installed. Then 2 months later I found out that I was going to have to have an AV Node Ablation, after which my pacemaker would then be doing 100% of my heart's work. I had the procedure 2 1/2 weeks ago and am now 100% dependent.
I am trying to find information on what happens when my pacemaker quits (battery dies). Will there be enough time to get a new battery/pacemaker or when this battery dies is that the end of me? This probably sounds like a ridiculous question, but everytime I asked it I seem to get very vague, unspecific answers. Is there anyone who can answer my question in clear and concise terms?
