With pacemaker, HR was steady 75 & suddenly dropped to 60

My pacemaker (Boston Sci, w/2 leads) was installed Oct, 2012 for AV Heart Block, 2nd degree, with 35 HR & upon stress test, HR wouldn't go over 50 (no symptoms other than HR). For months I had steady 75-80 HR, followed by few months of approx. 65 HR. Now suddenly HR is 58-62. Should I be concerned? I am currently preparing for total extraction & re-implantation of pacemaker because it's become 'unstitched' and is moving & because battery (& other parts) are visible just under skin (surgeon concerned it'll actually come out of skin). My question is, between now & surgery, should I be concerned about this lower HR? I do also feel suddenly weak and exhausted, but perhaps that's unrelated (?).
