PM revision 26th Nov
Hi all, Monday I had my PM changed for a new one, with one new lead also being added (the lower chamber lead) The old lead was left in situ as the Doc said because it had been there for 11 years the risk of damage to the heart was to great it was best to leave it.
Whilst the Operation wasn't the nicest of experiences ( the sedative given via the drip didn't seem to have any effect at all ) Any pain or discomfort felt was bearable. Since having it done I feel 100% better, in fact the moment they implanted it and switched it on I could feel the difference. For those interested I have posted a picture of the operation wound/scar in the members gallery, sorry if it offends anyone',at least newbies undergoing the op for the first time will have some idea of what to expect.
The incision was made about one inch below the original one but the PM was put back into the space/pocket created for the first one.
Hope this was of interest to you and wish you all the best
