Update - PM evaluation
I recently had a PM evaluation here are some notes I received. I am scheduled for the UPGRADE PM SING,DUAL,OR CRTP TO CRTD; 33233+33249 on JUly 12th. My symptoms are still post-ecertional fatigue, exhaustion, edema and, muscle loss and weakness. I am a bit discouraged in finding out the PM is functioning properly, it means something else is going on.
"The only changes we ended up making yesterday were that the activity threshold (how sensitive your device is in sensing activity) was changed from low to medium low and the mode was changed back to DDDR. The mode you were in when you came in was the same (DDDR) but it was a setting that allowed the device to change if needed, but in looking at how often that occurs, it never did, so there was no reason for the device to have the option to switch.
I think ---- can better assess and explain whether or not the symptoms you are having are related to your pacemaker and why the recommendation to proceed with the third lead. Your device IS functioning correctly, so that is not a concern. Hopefully once you have the discussion with ---- about things, she will be able to give you some guidance on options for figuring out what is causing your symptoms. They can make the best recommendations for settings and device changes that can optimize the device for you and hopefully help with your symptoms.
