Contemplating AV Node Ablation and Pacemaker
Hi everyone. I'm new to the group. I'm 78 and active, but have had 3 unsuccessful ablations and am just sick of feeling my heart do it's continual acrobatics. My little circus is a lifetime of Afib, extra beats and tackycardia, and also brady and longer qt intervals at other times with HR in the 50s. It all seems to be diet related, because I have so many food and chem intolerances that set it off. I also feel like I'd go down quickly with a Covid infection. I'm contemplating AV Ablation and Pacemaker, and am wondering if with this new equipment, there are things you can't or shouldn't do, like use an electric blanket, go thru standard security lines at the airport, etc. What's the word?
You know you're wired when...
Titanium is your favorite metal.
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.
