6 week check up

Hard to belive  that i have now had this pacemaker for 6 weeks. now.  Saw the  PA for the EP  and pacemaker tech this morning.  Said healing well(do have a rash from the glue that was used.)  And a little scar tissue which i hope to work out using accupuncture and movement.

Since the last checkup 4 weeks ago have paced 40%  of the time, 8% afib, and a rate of 68-70.  I of course have not noticed or  felt anything.  Was told some feel something and others i guess am in the catorgory who do not.

Said battery should last 13 years.  Am now referred back to the Cardiolgist who will monitor  me from now on.

   i will say my food senistivities  reactions are not as strong and quick to react now, which are good thing.  None are life threatening.

  Said wearing an alert with "pacemaker' was optional.  But will get  a wrist one as i would like to make it easy for those who need to know amd   with the name of the kind.  Rather than have to search me to find anything out about me.  

   Would like to thank all who in the past 6 weeks have helped go through this. healing process.

Hey guys I haven't been on here in a while, but I've enjoyed reading everyone's posts on their follow-ups and wanted to share mine...I'm glad to hear all of these success stories. I had a biventricular pacemaker defibrillator put in December 26th of last year. My EF was 20-25%...I've had two echos done with one a couple of months ago and one today. My EF is now 45-50%. Thanks to God, all my doctors, Entresto and my Boston Scientific ICD!! Also I will be turning the big 5-0 in Jan...Wow time flies!  haha                                           Merry Christmas PM Club!! 


You know you're wired when...

You have a new body part.

I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
