On June 14,2021 received an email from Medtronic saying successful remote transmission. (Pacemaker implanted Aug. 19,2019). I waited a couple of days then called the Heart Center asking for a copy of the summary page. Said they would put it up front at the check in and i could pick it up. Then the tech say was noticed that i had a couple of nites(10pm) where the beat was fast 150, 148-170 for 20 minutes. Said she sent it to the EP(in the same office) and his nurse would call if something further. Finally on June 25,2021 the Cardiologist's nurse called. Said that both had confirmed and the ED said to the cardiologist what did she think. She said an Echo so am having an Echo on July 8th with the results on July 13. Might be leaking valves. i said since this started no one had asked about my heart murmur, or mytrle(sp) valve .
I said what could cause the fast beats and not all the time? Then asked when these were said near the end of May. I thought back to then, nurse said could be dehydation, to much salt. Then i realized the salt might be the it. Has had stocked up on snacks for the holiday. Now will not do that for this coming one.
That said my right leg is starting to swell again, wondering if all related. Now have support stockings on and will drasticlly increase my water intake. Had started walking more, would find big box stores and walk the whole inside ,even found an empty mall and walked that
Activity rate for the last week of the period was 3.9 hours a day. Still pacing around 44%.
