I was diagnosed with AFIB about 8 years ago. The only medication that kind of worked was SOTALO, a Beta Blocker.
My Cardiologist decided to give me a cryoablation which worked. Unfortunately a while back I was diagnosed with SSS. My pauses aren't quite long enough yet for a PM. (although my cardiologist left that decision up to me) However he said that when I get the PM, he would put me back on Sotalol. I was wondering if anybody else that has a PM is on a Beta Blocker? To me it sounds as if the PM should do the job that Sotalol supposedly does.
You know you're wired when...
You have a little piece of high-tech in your chest.
I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
