Long Term Effects?
Hello All, I hope you are well,
It has been a long while since i've been on here, firstly i wanted to wish everyone thanks for their support over my last post, the messages both private and public where lovely. Sadly In april my mum lost her battle at age 38, and passed away, cancer is a horrible horrible disease.
I mainly wanted to come on here to ask about complications of long term pacing. I have been doing really well lately, physically and mentally, but I stumbled upppn an article about long term RV pacing and heart failure, and I have not been able to stop thinking about it.
I have been 100% RV paced for 19 years due to 3rd degree AV heart block, and have had had no structural issues from it. Am i right to assume that after having it for so long with no real issue, I am one of those people who tolerate RV pacing? Or am I right having this constant panic at the moment that one day i'll feel awful and be told I have heart failure?
It is a real worry at the moment as everything seems to be coming together, and now this seemingly horrible complication has come to my knowledge and brought back some awful anxiety that I had worked so hard to take under control.
Thank you everyone and I hope to speak to you soon,
You know you're wired when...
