I am a 44 year-old women and I have had a dual chamber pacemaker for almost 3 years to treat my 3rd degree heart block. I just went in for a device check and it was discovered that I now have Afib. I have an appointment with my EP cardiologist in a few days to talk about everything. Has anyone else developed Afib after getting a pacemaker? This is my 3rd diagnosed electrical heart issue and feeling a little frustrated. I feel like I get one thing "fixed" and then another pops up. Thanks for any insights!
You know you're wired when...
You invested in the Energizer battery company.
I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
