New to all of this and overwhelmed
I got my PM implanted 2 days ago. In October I had to have open heart surgery for aortic valve replacement. I developed 3rd degree heart block in the hospital but it resolved and I was discharged with no issues. However, last week I started experiencing SOB, fatigue and very low HR. Turns out the heart block came back and the only solution was the PM. Doctors really had no answer as to why it would go away for 5 weeks and then come back and apparently it's pretty rare what happened to me. I was just getting back to normal from the valve surgery and now this. Anyone have any similar experiences? I feel so lost and overwhelmed bc I was always prepared to have the valve replaced (congenital bicuspid valve that gave me a good 45 years). But to now have the block and permanent PM on top of that. Thank you for any advice/input.
