Do you find yourself feeling vulnerable in crowded spaces, or find yourself trying not to be a burden?

I find myself suddenly wanting to rush home and get back to "safety" when I am at a doctor's waiting room, a public elevator...And then I realize that although everyone in my family are wonderful helping me, I try not to need help so I don't feel like I am imposing.

Has anyone had a lead come out of their dual pacemaker

Has anyone had a lead come out of their dual pacemaker

Currently in hospital after the lead in my top chamber came loose , it then sat on a nerve causing visable jolting of my chest and diaphragm and breathlessness , weirdest experience ever. Having another op tomorrow to replace , now it's left me with the added concern of it happening again , I have total heart block so completely dependent on the pacemaker, has anyone else had these issues Margaret
