Yesterday I found out I needed to get a pacemaker.
I couldn't believe it, I cried my eyes out. I'm a 24 year old women and I couldn't believe how scared I am. In my case I have vasovagal syncope. So I pass out, I've probably passed out about 200 times in my life time. I need to make a choice, should I get one or shouldn't I. All doctors say yes, mom and dad are a go. But I don't know.
How painful is it, not the surgury but in general just to have. I've been reading about bra problems and seat belt problems and what about the scares? Is it big, can you see the pacemaker from the outside, do you notice it when you wear a bathing suit or dresses?
I don't really know what to do?
