Pacemakers and defibrillators: Who here also has one?Page 1 of 1    
Had a pacemaker put in because my heartbeat was going down to 37 to 39 beats per minute at night ñ I started to become extremely tired during the day. Low heartbeats for athletic people is okay. I was extremely high engery most of my life ñ walla. It happened . All went well than for 7 months of good adjustment ñ tweaking it. They decided I was using 90 % OF BETTER ñ they did something to save on battery. Now back to square one. The Dr. Stated it shouldn't made any difference. But it has. Within a half an hour of what they did ..I lost all engery couldn't make it thur a store. Anyone know anything about this. I called mfg. And the techs states It makes a difference. Guess I will have to find new Dr. I know people who ate very young with both. My heart is very good they said wirh no plaque. Just the rythmatic controller inside wore out. They gave me 2 leads because at 72 they thought the other one might go bad.

I have had a pacemaker for years. The first one was recalled...Ha! They replaced it. The second one wore out a year ago and had to be replaced. And on and on it goes. Hey, I have a question for you. If a pacemaker keeps the heart beating, at a regular rate, what is it that those of us who have , die of? Think about it.

Let's see. One can pass from cancer- any fate accidents - other organs failing. Hospital or some one just shuts off the pacemaker. Dr. Snore Is the pacemaker suppose to keep beats regular all the time?
