pacemaker fractured wires
I live in Tucson Arizona. My first pacemaker was placed in Oct. 2002. In Feb 2007 my atrial wire fractured. A new pacemaker and new wire were placed at that time. In August 2014 my battery ran out and a new pacemaker was inserted. Now in Feb 2021 my second atrial wire fractured. A doctor I was referred to said he wouldn't take out a fractured lead but rather would add a fourth wire to that vein and also he refused to put in a new pacemaker at that time so I will need to have that done in the next three years. So I'm looking for a new doctor who will give me all my options. If my insurance won't cover it I'll change insurance in December of this year. Looking for help,

I've seen many posts about people being concerned about exercise after having a device so thought I would let you know that yesterday I raced my first marathon since having my pacemaker fitted in fall 2004.
