AV block Progression.
14 months ago, I was diagnosed with type II AV block and had my pacemaker fitted. At my first check-up six weeks later, I was being paced 17 % of the time in my right ventricle. I had a check-up today, and I am now pacing over 70% of the time, so I now have stage 3 block, which frightens the life out of me. I know that my PM will take care of it, but battery life will be reduced (8.5 years left) and if anything goes wrong, I'll be in big trouble.
I know this really minor compared to some people's problems, but I had to get it off my chest.

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
