I have another question on my recent AFIB. Since my HR was 81-82 most days, up from 70, I told my EP and she adjusted the PM somehow so now the HR is decreasing, at 74 now. What I don't understand is the PM can only keep HR from dropping why has adjusting it lowered the HR? I know I shoud ask the Dr. but it is quite complicated getting answers. The pacing % has changed from 80/40 to 35/65% ( which is when the Dr. told me I now had AFIB). Probably unrelated but having difficult depression in the day until late afternoon and then feel somewhat normal in the evening. haven't had this problem before and my life is easy and full of great family and friends. OK, I will quit whining now!

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
