I'm a new member and want to thank you for any advice you can give me. I'm an 81 year old who has always been in good health. In October after several tests I was told I needed a PM for a slowheart rate. I have been prescribed several medicines, none of which have helped me. Besides my palpatations, I am tired, dizzy, tingling in hands and feet at times, and sometimes chills. My last visit to the cardiologist he suggested an ablasion. After some reading I find that it could cause damage to my PM, and that afterwards I would be completly dependent upon the PM. I have friends who have had successul ablasions but they don't have PM's. Could use some advice as to how to proceed and questions to ask the ElectroPhysiologist that I will talk to this next Tuesday. Thanks for any advice.
You know you're wired when...
You have the perfect reason to show off 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.
