Good luck tomorrow with your CRT-D pacemaker! I had a CRT- P pacemaker fitted 2 months ago and I am hoping that my EF will improve. Do you know if you will be on any medication?

How are you getting on and are you on medication to help improve your ejection fraction ?  It is still early days but I hope you are doing better

Hi Gemita! I was wishing Daisy 2020 good luck and posted it in the wrong place! I am feeling a lot better now and I have cut down on decaffeinated teas and coffees which has helped. I am waiting for an echocardiogram which has been delayed due to COVID.

 Thank you for your advice and help!

If your EF doesn't improve, be evaluated tor His bundle pacing (Google that). You don't even need to go to Mayo or Cleveland clinic tor that any more. See: www.His-pacing,org too.

Thank you Terry for letting me know about HIS bundle pacing. I am waiting for an echocardiogram ( delayed due to COVID) to see if my LVSD and Ef have improved.         I live in Scotland and HIS bundle pacing was not mentioned. Perhaps if I had this in January when I had a dual lead pacemaker fitted I would not have needed a CRT - P pacemaker in May.

 

 

You know you're wired when...

Your signature looks like an EKG.

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.
