I am a bit bummed. After my pacemaker implant 3 years ago I received a Merlin at Home transmitter where reports were routinely sent in quarterly. I felt very secure knowing I was monitored at night. I am pacemaker dependent with complete heart block. I moved and with Tracey's help here at the club, I requested my former Cardiologist release me to my new doctor whom I will see for the first time in a couple of weeks.
I was just informed that this new doctor doesn't do the home monitoring thing. I have been having some real issues with fatigue, especially after the rate response was turned on. Just how important is this home monitoring? I have been assured that I will have frequent pacer checks. This doctor was highly recommended by my PCP. Should I worry or just forget about it? Also, I've heard others here talk about a watch type device that keeps track of things. I'm 79 but surely open to anything available. Thank you for your time.
