I was told by the technition who examined my pacemaker yesterday that the wires to the pacemaker were not the right ones for this pacmaker.
I was told that I have to have another operation to put the rigfht wiresfor this pacemaker.
Otherwise, the battery will run out in about one year and half.
Also, the pulse is too high and it will be hard n the heart if the situation is not corrected now.
Please advise what shiould I do.

Hello
It sounds like there is no immediate danger
However you need to immediately talk to what ever doctor placed this and relay this information
Have them verify that this is the case...you don't know from just talking to the technician.
good luck

Furher to my question of 3/1/2012.
What the rechnitian said was confirmed by the heart specialist at the hospital.
Expert:  DrThomasMD replied 4 years ago.
So what is the plan by the heart specialist?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The heart specialist at the General hospital in Toronto said that he will arrange a surgery at the hospital to fix the lead to the pacemaker. Oherwise, the battery would last only 1 to 1 1/2 years.

If the problems with the lead is not corrected now the heart would suffer because the pulse is programmed too high.

Then that is your course.
The question is then why was the incorrect lead put in.
Which I can not answer for you.
good luck
