2nd pm in a couple of weeks
It has taken me to long to find this site. My first pm was implanted 8 years ago when I was 29 just 8 months after my son was born. I'm 100% paced and I am challenging case so the team of doctors tell me. The first 6.5 years of with my pm were great - I was able to do all my normal activities plus exercise. About year and half ago I started having extreme fatigue, light headed, daily activities can be challenging and shortness of breath. We have done every test on my heart and we decided CRT (Cardio resynchronization therapy) pacemaker is the best option. It's hard to believe in a couple weeks I'm getting my second pacemaker and I'm only 37. Going from dual paced pm to a CRT I have to have a thrid wire inserted. I'm excited to see if this new pacemaker will help me to feel better and I'm anxios about recovery. Has anyone had a CRT? Any tips or advice for recovery? Desperate to feel better.
