What pacemaker, is it still there?
I wonder if my comment here might be a hopeful thing for some in their early pm days.
I reckon it took around two years for my heart to become happy with my twin lead St Jude pm for complete heart block.
And now, two and a half years on, I'm not even aware I have a pacemaker, or even a heart. I'm almost a normal old man, whatever that is!
