CRT and arrhythmia
Hello everyone. I'm a reasonably active, slim and otherwise healthy 45 year old female. I've had cardiac arrhythmia since childhood. In 2011 I was diagnosed as having a RBBB. On August 7th, this year, I was diagnosed with a Complete Heart Block and received a CRT-P pacemaker implant on August 15th. I wish I could say I'm doing well. I'm trying my best to present that way, but I am very frightened. Morning and night time are the hardest. I'm still experiencing cardiac arrhythmia. The Cardiologist said the CRT-P pacemaker will resynchronise the heart but won't prevent arrhythmia. They tell me that these episodes of arrhythmia, while unpleasant, are safe. Has anyone on the forum experienced anything similar? I live alone with my three dogs and I find going to sleep each night frightening for fear of having another medical event. Thank you.

Pacemakers are very reliable devices.
