New Member - Sitting in Hospital Post Op
Hi Guys and Gals,
im a 38 year old male that was diagnosed with 3rd degree AV block and just had a pacemaker installed. I've been in denial for a few days but want to live a long life for my beautiful child. I'm literally sitting in the hospital bed typing this. I'm glad there is a support group out there and I hope to learn more about living a full and happy life. I just hope I can continue to do HIIT and weight lifting. Also wondering if I'm going overboard with wanting to buy the seatbelt cushion, Apple Watch to monitor my heart, ECG portable device that connects to your phone, etc.
You know you're wired when...
Like the Energizer Bunny, you keep going.
I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
