We would like to know what kind of injury/discomfort can result from
having a pacemaker
attached but not working.
Also, her original reason for having the pacemaker
was to control
rapid heartbeat. Can she expect any permanent injury/discomfort to
result from her NOT having the pacemaker running for that time period?
Pacemakers are powered by generators that run out of energy over time. When this happens, the generator needs to be replaced.
