What is the procedure like? What questions do you suggest?
Tomorrow I'm having the pacemaker conversation with my EP. I have a list of questions, but I'm wondering what you wish you had thought to ask up front. (I have lots of PACs/PVCs and now intermittent bradycardia - HR 40s, hx of A-Fib, and "a very ectopic atria." EP doesn't think I have sinus node dysfunction).
Also, what is the procedure like? I've seen conflicting stories elsewhere re: anesthesia, no anesthesia, general vs. propofol, day surgery vs. overnight.
Also, I haven't had an Echo for 3 years since the ablation, and I feel like I need to push for that before the PM placement. Afterall, how do I know if breathlessness, fatigue, etc. is due to more than my arrhythmia? Right?
Thank you =)
