Has anyone since pacemaker implant had to wear a 30 day event monitor? I'm 3 weeks post implant for tachy-brady, but for now, because of my age I guess, only have a single chamber pacing my atrium. (My home town cardiologist was surprised that I only had one lead in my atrium......don't know why exactly. He said they're keeping it simple for now because I'm so young and that they'll probably have to insert another lead sooner or later.) It's all sort of confusing to me.
Anyways, I'm still experiencing rhythm irregularites, and the nurse was not sure that my pacer was recording these episodes. So.....30 days of wearing these wires. I've been dealing with this for 8 years. I thought since my pacemaker implant that my 30 day event monitor days were over.
I know it takes a while to get my pacer and drug combo situated, but this is madness. I hope it can be fixed with a pacemaker or dosage adjustment. We'll see........
As Charlie Brown always said.........."Good grief!"

My ICD/pacer is not a burden. I still play tennis and golf.
