I just had my PM inserted a week ago. I had Bradycardia with a rate of 30. I have been sick since 2/7/07 when I passed out a work- they did a full code with CPR- had two other episodes since then both with CPR--very very scary-
My question/concern is I have been out of work since the 1st episode,I am anxious to go back(I am a nurse at a very busy Physician practice,also assist with Breast Biopsy)
I am still tired,although not nearly as overwhelming as before
I have a stinging sensation at the site-and sleeping on my left side is very uncomfortable ,should I be using my sling? they took it off at the hospital
My PM is dual
You know you're wired when...
You fondly named your implanted buddy.
My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
