My mother is probably getting a pacemaker this or next week. She has AFib, with low blood pressure/pulse and an uneven rhythm.
She was hoping to be able to use a pacemaker instead of drugs, and is deeply disappointed about probably having to continue to take them even with the pacemaker. She's annoyed that scientists have not made a pacemaker that can "do it all." Does anyone have any info for her that can help her feel more confident about getting the pacemaker?
She gets dizzy spells, rapid heart spells that make her almost or actually faint, and has a bit of an uneven rhythm. After eating is her danger time, when the majority of her episodes occur. She's not a good water drinker. I suspect she's constantly mildly dehydrated.
I'd love any tips and advice to give over to my sweet Norwegian mom!
