I am post 6 weeks after implant and at times heart flutters feels  like skipped beats and I get a weak feeling. This happens when I ramp up my activity working in yard climbing stairs etc.   perfectly fine in the morning and at night, seems to be tied to activity. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this. Was wondering if it is just my body getting used to this device.

I had a lot of PVCs after exercising, at first. That's all but gone away. Did you have an arrhythmia before getting your PM? A pacemaker, alone, is unlikely to do anything to correct any arrhythmia.


call them

They send us home with settings that are a good guess, but it's common to need them fine tuned. If you are getting symptoms on exertion, that's often an indication the settings aren't quite right for you.

Thanks for the input guys, I have a checkup coming soon maybe they can do some ttweaking.  One thing for sure this thing is going to take some getting used to.

I am 3 months in and had exactly the same symptoms as you for the first 6 weeks, and occasionally get them now.  I think it is just my body adjusting, but I'll mention it at my next checkup.

I finished 29th in London in 2 hours 20 minutes 30 seconds which is my fastest with or without a device so clearly it didn’t slow me down ! I had no problems apart from some slight chaffing on my scar - more Vaseline next time.
