Hi !
Just about to log out when I noticed your post.!
All of us that have read it will be thinking of you.We all know what it is to feel scared .Being able to come to the Pacemaker Club gives us a feeling that we are not alone with our thoughts and fears.
By the way a glass or 2 of red wine is really good for the heart so go for it !!!
Let us know how you get on at the cardiologist.
Take care and good luck-regards Kay(rewiredaussiegirl)

Isn't this site great. I got my pacemaker 2 weeks ago and these people here were such a blessing to me. All the comraderie, the advice and encouragement went a long way to helping ease my emotions. Please let us know how you are doing.

Your in our thoughts

zidanni, I was probably as apprehensive as you are. I feared the unknown too and didn't have the PM club to
consult-just a few acquaintances who had pacers implanted. All went well in my case and I'm sure it will in yours as well. The first two weeks were the worse; then I saw improvement each day - in my mobility, mental well being and alertness. Tomorrow, your day, makes my fourth week "anniversary" having my procedure. I feel terrific. The swelling caused by the surgery was very immobiling but it practically gone and I'm beginning to be hardly aware of the PM. It truly has given me back my life. I was so lethargic, tired, and foggy headed before the procedure. I bet you'll feel much more aware and alert with a few hours in the recovery. Your in our thoughts and prayers.
