Had my CRT-P fitted 9th May 22
I have paroxysmal AF which has become resistant to drug therapy and I am at the beginning my Pacemaker journey and wanted to send my thanks to all on this forum. The practical information is really useful as I was starting to think I was being a total hypochondriac regarding my pain levels. I do not have mild discomfort. I feel like I've been stabbed, which of course I have. It's sore. My heart feels like I've been kicked by a horse and It's definitely more than discomfort! Apparently my ECG is fine though so it's obvious that this is all post surgical pain. My procedure took over 3hours because the registrar had trouble getting the 3rd lead in and sent for the consultant. They managed in the end. I'm to get the AV node ablation on 6th June.
Anyway, just wanted to say hello and I will read all the forums today. Thanks for reading 😊
You know you're wired when...
Friends call you the bionic woman.
I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
