I went. I'm done!
Just got my 6th pacemaker implanted. For all of you that have to go for generator failure surgery, I'm getting to be an "old hat" at it. Still it causes a bit of trepidation. Mine is now finished and it went great. This is my 6th in 32 years with a dual implanted 25 years ago. I still have the same old wires, too. So far, this was the easiest yet. They really have improved their methods of reimplantation over the years.
I have gotten alot of really great information on this site and just want to let everyone know that yes, you can be a young person with a pacemaker and still live a normal life with a few small adjustments. I'm still ticking and my drs have grown old with me!
