Coping with transition to having a Pacemaker
Hi all well I'm doing well. However the transition from no pacemaker to having one is strange. 10 days today since I had a twin lead pacemaker fitted. I'm 53 this year in the Army and still serving. Not able to deploy now but I'm fit and worried with what I'm going to be able to do.
Good family and friends around me. That helps.
The thing is I feel the leads inside me it's strange and the pacemaker well I'm just feeling it move.
Looking forward to ridding my motorbike and driving too. However its changed my life already I don't feel tired. The little sucker won't let my heart rate drop to 43 - 45 I'm so pleased with RPH Cambridgeshire uk
You know you're wired when...
You make store alarms beep.
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.
