Hi everyone, I hope we are all ok !
just a few questions for the expirenced recipient :-
I had a Boston Scientific duel chamber unit fitted exactly 8 weeks ago
I have felt - and still feel worse than before it was fitted ! I'm always tired and get breathless even when cutting the grass or going up the house stairs - nothing major - just out of breath like I've been indulging in medium exercise !
I've had my first check up and the only thing they could see was the sensitivity of the reactive response of the unit was not quite set low enough to kick in and raise heart beat ! Apparently they altered it - but I still feel the same ! I am however waiting for cardioversion as I'm suffering from Afib - how exactly does Afib affect you and would it give me the symptoms I'm suffering ?
Lastly I'm convinced my unit has moved - I'm pretty sure the whole unit was below the incision scar when fitted - now the incision scar is half way down the unit and it's sitting pretty much right up against my collar bone ! Is this normal ? Has anyone experienced anything similar ?
I know someone is bound to say " can't you just go back to your cardio dept to get it checked etc " , believe me I'd love too but it's really not that easy or simple
