on 1-25-08 I had a pacemaker replacement. My first one was in from 6/2000 and battery life was nearing end. Had job done at NY Methodist Hosp (in Brooklyn,N.Y.). Excellant teamwork. No need to replace wires...still good. Unit is a St.Jude as was first and (thank God) never have had a problem. A St. Jude tech was there with his little black box to hook up to me and keep me going (I'm 100% dependant) while the exchange was made. Anesthesia was great...don't even remember going out.Total time for prep, in O.R. and recovery..3 1/2 hrs.. God is good.

Good for you Fisherman. I have had mine for about 2 years now and as others do wonder how long it will last and how the replacement will go. maybe I will luck out and have the same good experience you did!

Your so right God is good. I am so glad to hear that everything went well for you. My favorite part is ( I don't even remember anything ) that's a blessing by itself. Take care and don't overdo.
