Newbie - What to Expect
Hello to my new PM community! 54yo female, no family history of heart issues. Went for a treadmill test last Thursday to investigate shortness of breath and fatigue. Within a half hour I was wheeled to the ER, then admitted due to bradys down in the 30s; full AV block. A week later and I've just been released with a new Boston Scientfc PM. 24 hours later I'm home. I feel tired and lightheaded at times; all sorts of flip flop feelings in my chest. Hardly got any sleep the last two nights, and my body has been through a lot this week, so it's hard to sort out what symptoms might be related to my heart/PM vs other sources. I imagine there is a thread here somewhere that covers what to expect the first month or two, but I couldn't find it. I know it will be different for everyone, but it would really help to hear your experiences.
