A Lucky 4th
Hey to all;
I am a newbie! so new that this time last week I was just beginning to have mild chest pains...that got progressively worse until 5:00am last Tuesday morning when I finally got smart and went to my doc as a walk-in. That didn't go real well...he gave me two nitros and called an ambulance and put me in the hospital. The next day I was transferred to another hosp where they did a heart cath (I had had an angioplasty w/2 stents in 2002) All of that was fine...good stents;no blockages, but I DID have Bradycardia...3rd degree heart block...and the doc put in a temporary PM; attached to my groin. Thursday, I was given my permanent St Jude Medical, Dual Wire Pacemaker. Friday 4th, I got to come home...yea!! So now I'm entertaining myself finding out all about Pacemakers, and learning to live with the idea of having it with me from now on...
and in all my travels online I came upon this Pacemaker Club...and here I am. Those notes I've read give me the impression that this is a fine group...and very supportive. I joined right in as soon as I saw the invitation. Thanks, Boomer76
