After first checkup, have gone backward?
I greatly appreciate all the help available on this site. It has a wealth of information and hope I can help somebody one day.
So my pm mode is AAIR - DDDR and my hr is set 50 bpm at night 60 to 130 daytime. I've spent some time researching and believe I understand my modes.
So I had my first checkup on Tuesday. Three technicians, but not very chatty types. Managed to deduce I have a dicky sinus node which 'Needs a bit if help'. Transmission of signal to ventricles ok so presume AV node dispatching ok. They tell me they just want to get more out of the battery.
The heart rate hasn't changed an I must presume the mode is unaltered.
I'm just wondering. I presume they've just been tweaking but since the tweaks I seem to have gone backwards. After my checkup I did a 4 or 5 mile walk, nothing strenuous, took it slow stopped in a wood with a flask and sandwiches. I have been walking just about throughout. Felt excellent. Next day a bit of gardening, again very slow cutting the borders dead heading the roses.
Then that evening very tired a night in bed for 13 hours. Woke up tired, weak and headache. Had breakfast and did nothing all day. Headache turned it a light, giddy head by the afternoon so got myself food. Bed again for another 13 hours and rose weak and tired again. Had light palps for the first time for weeks when I started writing this.
I've got installation and programming manuals for my pm (Medtronic W3DR01) but frankly there's nothing I can deduce from those, they're simple not meant for the uneducated.
I'm thinking I just likely need to take it a bit slower for a while. But I'm also wondering could little tweaks be made which I must now readjust to, and has anyone experience a little tweak being a tweak too far.
Feeling better now though, mow the lawn when it dries a bit.
You know you're wired when...
Youre a battery-operated lover.
I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
