New pacemaker and svt
I received a surprise dual lead pacemaker on February 20, 2023 for complete heart block. I had no idea I had a problem until one day my fit bit told me my heart rate was way too low. It's been scary trying to adjust. The testing done in the hospital showed my heart is otherwise pretty normal and healthy. I have had some sensations of a squeezing feeling in my chest that come and go, and apparently I am also having SVT. I came home on lopressor 25 mg a day, but I was told to discontinue it through my chart messages with the physician assistant because I was having low blood pressure. I ended up having a frightening tachycardia episode and went to the ER after finding out my new transmission box wasn't working. I have an appointment to see my Dr in three weeks in response to this. I haven't seen him since the surgery. I am so worried and upset about finding out there is an additional issue. I was told to resume the medication and that I would be ok. But I don't know or understand much about either of these issues. Has anyone else had a similar condition?
You know you're wired when...
You have the perfect reason to show off your chest.
I had a pacemaker since 2002 and ever since then my life has been a total blessing.
