recent pacemaker insertion L111 Boston Scientific
I went to JH in Baltimore to inquire about low BPM alerts on my iwatch. Over a period of two days the watch warned me that my rate was below 40 for 10 minutes or more. Upon further review over the last couple three years my watch generated the same warning sporadically. I called Teledoc and after 8 hours the call was returned, the doctor told me to go to the emergency room. This was after I worked out at my Crossfit box on Sunday. I did half the workout called 12 days of Christmas as a precaution, but did notice it was causing me to get winded a little more than usual. (age group 50-54 although I am 63 workout had ground to overhead 300 meter row, 115 lb snatches 115 lb thrusters, bar muscle ups, stationary dips, burpees etc.) Crazy I know, but love it. When I arrived at the emergency room they did an EKG and noticed an anomoly. They brought out a wheelchair?! They brought to a room for a few hours then ICU for a pacemaker insertion the next day. Many tests were run atrial flutter and bradycardia was the diagnosis. My heart rate was remaining in the low 30s sometimes high 20s (resting always was in high 40s) they were surprised I did not need help to move about or passed. They decided to squeeze me in the next day when they noticed some organ damage may be occurring base on chem tests. So my question is this dual lead pacemaker was placed right below m collarbone. There was commentary there wasn't any fat in that area, but I was never given a choice. The pacemaker bulges out like a hockey puck and is placed right slightly below where I receive the bar in the clean, front squats, etc. I was never given a choice of location, and now I asking for relocation (wires stay in place), under the pectoral muscle. Anyone had experience with relocation, Crossfit? I don''t have coronary heart disease, Lyme, etc. never any meds at 64, but all went to crap. I had a very difficult 2020 thought could be heartbreak syndrome related. Thank you.
