All the pacer is going to do is raise your heart rate. It won't have a direct effect on anything else. Are you still on pain meds? I never want to eat when I'm taking them. New heart meds? Any other changes? Could it be depression? 

Some questions might shed some light on what you are feeling ....

Are you having trouble sleeping or do you want to take a nap or sleep during the day?

Are you having trouble focusing on either your family, work or hobbies?

Are you wanting to stay home more than in the past?

Has a fear of sickness or even death become more prevalent?

My take and "experience is  ("I know a thing or two because I've seen a thingor two") if any one or more of these questions might be answered as "yes" then I agree with Tracy that it could be depression - MANY of us have experienced depression after getting their PM's.

 

You know you're wired when...

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

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
