side effects of PMs
Ive just come back from a regular PM check (in the UK) and was told that I am being paced about 25% of the time. The doctor said this was 'good'- I said, 'why- because my battery will last longer?' and he said, 'yes, but also because your heart is unlikely to be damaged by pacing at this level'.
I didn't ask for any more details at the time but now I'm starting to wonder about what he said. This is the first time I had heard of this- perhaps I have been living in a dark cave and missed something- and of course I dont have a choice because the PM has to stay and has made my life infinitely better- but I wondered if anyone else had heard of the type of damage that can be done when people are paced frequently, and anything that can be done to limit damage?
thanks for any info!!
