Post Pacemaker Feelings
I had my pacemaker fitted on the 27th July after being admitted into hospital as an emergency with a heart rate of 27. I was very ill indeed. After surgery I felt wonderful practically immediately afterwards. However, now on the 23rd August I really am getting quite tired. I walked just over 3000 steps today just trying to get fit, but my pulse was 120 plus and my chest hurt a bit so I was worried. I really expected that by this time I would be feeling so much stronger than I am.
I have to go to the Heart Clinic on the 1st September for the first time post op when I understand my PM will be re calibrated to suit my lifestyle. I just wonder if I am expecting too much or maybe doing too much. I don't want to be a wimp, but am getting a bit depressed with it all.
