Great site!


I just wanted to say hello. I had my pacemaker "installed" 5 days ago. I found this site while researching PMs... as the saying goes, I guess I am battery operated now!

I really appreciate all information, and the people that contribute to this site.


Thank You 


It is good to have you join us

Hello Winder119,

Welcome to our world and to your new implantation.  I hope you have had a good first 5 days and will continue to do well with your pacemaker.  Remember someone is usually on this forum 24/7, so if you need any help, ask away and we will all try to help.

No doubt you have got your hospital discharge instructions of some do's and don't's, but do not be too hard on yourself, our devices are really quite firmly fixed and they don't usually move around or get pulled out so easily.  Just watch your wound and keep it clean and dry and ease slowly back into your activities is the only advice I would give.

Agreed, winder119 - the people who put their time and energy into this site are helping so many others on their journeys.  Best wishes to you as you adapt to life with your new device.

Hi Winder119, 

Wish you're feeling better now and have a speedy recovery from the surgery :)

I'm also new here and just like what you said this forum is wonderful. Many people here are so knowledgeable and experienced. They help me understand more and know better what to ask my doctor in the follow up sessions.

You know you're wired when...

Your signature looks like an EKG.
