I finally had my pace maker put in a week ago
I am 61 years old and my heart rate when I was younger was 44 and has been 30 since I Turned 40. I did have some dizzyness when I was mid thirtys. Almost no symptoms in the last 10 years. So why did I do it? Well I learned my heart rate when I sleep is 21 and was 28 at my last check up with the Cardiologist. He said I could pass out driving or on a ladder. I was told i would most likely feel better. Well I don't feel any different since the prcedure but I hope in time I will. I guess during the operation i went into Afib 3 times and had to be defibulated. They ended up turning off the lower lead. I hope I did the right thing as if I go into Afib again they recommend blood thinners the rest of my life. So thats my story and now i look forward to playing golf in another 5 weeks.
