could some one tell me what the small metal object is on the lower right side in this x-ray. i am asking because when the pace maker wire was pulled out of me, there was no electrode on the end of the coil, or bare wire.

Hi, Cabins2009, and welcome! It's nice to "meet" you!


Wow, after looking at your x-ray and knowing what happened, I'd say there's a real possibility that it's the missing part of the pacemaker. However, I'm not a medical professional, so it's just a guess on my part. It surprises me that whomever looked at the x-ray didn't explain what that
