Replacing RVL CTR-P
I am a 46 year old female. I had a Complete Heart Block in August, shortly after a significant medical event which occurred three weeks prior. I hemorrhaged after a routine hemmerhoid surgery and required several blood transfusions. It is not know whether there is any relationship between the two events.
It has been determined that my RVL is working too hard and is draining the battery life of the pacemaker. It is thought that this is because it is conducting through excess scar tissue. The cardiologist has determined that it's best to replace the RVL.
Has anyone experienced this before? Is there anything I should be aware of prior to this surgery?

Your pacemaker interferes with your electronic scale.
Do feel free to contact the manufacturer of your device. I have found them to be quite helpful when I have had questions and concerns.
