So I had a generator replacement on Dec 15. I posted before about this because during the procedure and an hour after I went into afib and developed what they told me was an atrial flutter. They used the pacer to trick my heart back into a normal rhythm and gave me meds to control it. Today at my follow up, after they had time to review the events of that day, said it was not really a flutter but atrial tachycardia. Has anyone else had this after a gen change? I was 30 when I got my first pacer, this is only my first change, and I am just about 40. They are treating it with meds (Bisoprolol). They took me off the other one they gave me that day, which I'm happy about because that one is know to have terrible long term effects. I'm just curious as to why this happened? Has anyone one had it repair itself in a way? Or is this just another level of having completel heart block? I asked these questions but there was not clear answer as to why, just that it could of been wire tugging, anxiety, stress of the procedure, etc. I was awake and I can assure, the next change I am requesting they knock me out for me out. I felt fairly calm going into this, I'm not looking forward to the next one!
