Recent recipient looking for advice
I am 6 weeks in with a St judes Assurity DR MRI dual pacemaker.
In 2019 I had a serious electrolyte imbalance due to lack of potassium (probably caused by severve reaction to high blood pressure meds) 3 emergency trips to hospital and test results lost, and had tests repeated.
I was diagnosed with a mobitz 2 block. My first appointment in early 2020 was postponed due to Covid-19. My pacemaker was finally implanted in late Sept 2020. I have been looking for a support group for someone to help me through this and drew a blank at every contact, then I saw you online. So far I have had no check up, but expect someone will do a pacing check in the next couple of months. This has all been a shock and very unexpected for me, can I ask what should I try to find out at a pacing check so I can gain more knowledge about how I can move on with confidence. I would be grateful for any help and advice please.

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.
