I was scheduled to have my pacemaker replaced this Friday because I am on the last 3 months of the battery and he also wants to put in a third lead, but he wanted me to get an echo and Stress Test this week, both of which came back abnormal with an EP of 39% and apparently possible blockage somewhere that showed up on the Stress Test (haven't seen the results yet). Suggested I contact a cardiologist to do a heart cath. All this was done through his NP because I never see him or talk to him. He won't do the replacement so I tried to contact my cardiologist but he is off until Monday due to holiday. My Pacemaker is set at 65 BPM right now, but this is very stressful.
