Pacer discomfort

Anyone have trouble with 30 year old leads, new pacers with adaptors to fit with the old leads, and fitting it in a submammary implantation?

I can feel it when I sleep on my side. The adapters are pretty big! My first 4 were submammary, newest was moved to subpectoral but it slipped and now it sticks out when I move the wrong way or sleep on my side. I liked it better submammary, was a lot more comfortable.

How many have you had? I had a plastic surgeon rebuild the pocket when I got #4. Scar tissue had built up and was uncomfortable.
