Leaving detached lead in?
Hi. I Have had my pacemaker for three years now. I have two leads, one has detached and the doctor has determined that it is too risky to remove it. But what are the risks to leaving it inside and unattached to anything? I'm a little nervous about this. He has not talked about replacing it although my pulse has lowered again. Because that would be too much hardware inside. Can leaving it cause any problems?
