My husband has just had heart surgery on Dec. 27, 2011. Received two stents.
Two hours after surgery we thought all was well, when his heart stopped for 28 seconds. The following day he had a dual-chamber pacemaker installed.
On our follow up visit to the cardiologist we learned that the lead attached to his lower heart was unseated, or had become dislodged!? Dr. told us that it would require further surgery to fix, But he had to discuss with the surgeon before getting back to us. That was on Jan. 11, 2011. So far have heard nothing.
My husband just turned 58 in December. He was also diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer earlier in December. I've been posting predominately on that section of HW.
My question is, does anyone have experience, or knowledge of this kind of repair surgery?
