how i got here
hi am very new to this as have just had the pacemaker installed on Aug 21st,2019. Needless to say was not aware of any problems. Knew for years that heart beat was slow. Was going for shoulder replacement and the doctor required a stress test 30 days before. Decided since no pain yet cancelled shoulder surgery. Heart dr said since have not seen him since 2016 should have echo, heart holter and stress test. Expected to ge the results on Aug 27,2019. Was contacted on Fri Aug 16. was told needed pacemaker. Heart beat was slow and fast and with pauses. I have not been having any of the problems that have been mentioned. I did find this site shortly after and read before surgery. I of course thought this would help the problems that i needed the answers to. Which i will now ask the cardilogist when i see him on Aug.27th for other results of the tests and now check up.
Was told i can drive, but my car door is heavy to push. Have signed up with local county bus service door to door. Dressing as been interesting as for the past 2 years left arm went last and wiggled into sleeve. Now it is first or not al all. With blouse sleeve over sling.
Had rebagged the veggies i eat as lifting hot dish out of microwave with one hand impossible. Will use a friend to help me shop than have her cut up and cook something on stove for me.
Are their any other suggestions for me. Do have my arm out of sling while typeing this on my laptop. Arm is resting on arm of chair.
