A pacemaker is only a gas petal. It can only make the heart go faster. It's not a brake. It cannot slow it down. It can't do a thing for most arrhythmias  (because the increase the heart rate) either.

Your pacemaker was implanted to replace your AV node, evidently. It can't do anything for Afib. You'll have to manage that as usual. You do have the advantage that your doctors don't have to worry about the drugs lowering your heart rate.

You know you're wired when...

You have an excuse for gaining an extra ounce or two.

I just want to share about the quality of life after my pacemaker, and hopefully increase awareness that lifestyles do not have to be drastically modified just because we are pacemaker recipients.
