I don’t want my pacemaker anymore
I have now been given a chance from a division 2 Coach to play quarterback at the University, I love football so much and I have always loved it. I did have a problem with my Pacemaker not being paced high enough heart rate that my body needed it to, but every since I have felt much better, the doctors fixed that from 180 to 210. I can actually run again and do things I couldn't do when I first got the pacemaker, I feel much better. I occasionally get a skipped beat here and there but nothing serious, this can make my anxiety worse thought. I just have a problem with anxiety, we did power cleans this week which is explosive exercise and I kept thinking I was goin to hurt my pacemaker! I have always wanted to play college football and have always dreamed of playing and I still haven't given up to play professionally because I have the talent! I have just been in contact with a researcher in Emory and children's healthcare of Atlanta in Atlanta Georgia. I plan to meet with him because he asked if I would like to, he said we are getting closer and closer we should be in the first clinical studies in four years to regenerate the hearts conduction system. I am 20 years old and I can't keep putting Football off I have to play this year, how do you cope with your anxiety, I just want to forget that I have a pacemaker and just enjoy life. Has anyone known of people fixing their heart block? I acquired heart block due to previous doctor in and ablation for WPW.
