I have a woman friend who got a pacemaker at 15.  She's had it replaced a few times, but she's lived a pretty normal life and even has two children.

He will be fine, I promise!  He will lead a normal life.  I suggest the website implantable.com.  They might be able to relieve some of your anxiety.
