Pacemaker - now or wait!
Hello, I hope it was OK that I joined before I had my pacemaker surgery. I wanted to get some opinions, please. Dr. said I could wait 5 to 8 years before having it done. Dr. asked my opinion about waiting and I mentioned that it crossed my mind maybe I should have done sooner while I am younger (65) rather than waiting til almost 75 plus it should help with my episodes of being tired by pulse is low or BP is low. Dr. said "OK, we can schedule it for next month!" I was surprised becasue before it was " let's wait. Your are not fainting or passing out". . Diagnosed with sinus node dysfunction (without chronotropic incompetence on ETT) - not on AVN blocking agents, PACs, bursts of atrial tachycardia, and a preserved LVEF on echocardiogram and bradycardia. Also now with the up tick in Covid cases I wonder should I have it done now or wait, too? Opinions and thoughts, please? Thank you!
