Pacemaker

Pacemaker

I had a pacemaker put in about 8 years ago. Then about 5 years ago, I had that pacemaker removed and a defibrillator pacemaker put in its’ place. Am I the only one who didn’t feel any differently when each of my pacemakers were installed? I don’t faint anymore. That is about the only difference. As far as being aware of a pacemaker, I feel nothing. Maybe that is a good thing. Maybe I feel so well, maybe I don’t feel anything.

I personally think that's a great thing! I'm curious what kind of pace maker did you have? The traditional one or micra?

I don’t feel anything. I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

I go in for all my checkups. That’s not too much to live. Thank God for pacemakers and alll the advances in heart disease. If I lived a hundred years ago, I would have been dead a long time ago. Just think what the future holds.

Sometimes it's not the pacemaker or defibrillator, it can be issues with the lead wires. They need to be checked and oftentimes changed out. Makes a world of difference.
