New to the pacer realm
I got a Boston Scientific Altrua 60 single lead implanted last Thursday. I'll be glad when I can drive, dress myself, and sleep without tying my arm down. (I usually like to sleep with my hands behind my head)
The operation was a blast. Fantastic doc, crew, and hospital. Everything is fine. Had my first pacer check yesterday and was surprised to be pacing at 37%. I was wondering if that's good or bad. I guess good since it's been there when I needed it.
Another thing this morning is I've been plagued with runs of Atrial flutter, and A-fib, especially when I bend over or squat down. Don't know if there's anything my doc can do about that. I doubt it.
I have a single lead right now to control the bad effects of the Toprol. I'm tolerating it well. If this doesn't work, my pacer can accomodate 2 leads, just in case they decide to ablate the AV Node at a later date.
