History of pericarditis, can I still get a pacemaker?
My cardiologist office is closed until Monday for me to ask this, but I am wondering has anyone had a history of pericarditis and then got a pacemaker? Would I be more at risk for redeveloping pericarditis? I had pericarditis 11 years ago. I now have bradicardia and 5-10 second stops. I believe my cardiologist is leaning towards a pacemaker. I am worried that I could redevelop pericarditis after implantation.
