Just asking for an update...

from far4u. You just got the PM yesterday I believe. How are you feeling? Did al go as you thought it would? And did you stay awake or get knocked out? LOL . I hope you are feeling better. You will notice witheach day it will get better and better. I remember that as time went by i kept thikning when will all this pain go away. One day I made it through quite a bit of time without even thinking about my PM. I still have pain at the site but I'm working with the docs to try to figure out why but I can truly say that I am so happy I got my PM. The dizziness and fatigue were gone almost immediately, I hope that is the case for you. If you need anything just let us know. That's what great about this site , there is always someone here that can answer your questions.
Take care and hoping you a quick recovery.
Truly, your "strange" friend,

from you. I always worry about one of us tat is going through a procedure and don't stop until I hear from them . I always sign off your "strange" friend because it is amazing to me that we are strangers but become firneds through this site. It really is a great place for answers and support. Blake is truly got a place in heaven waiting ( in 50 plus years) for him. I hope you get better with each day. My surgery to only took a short time. It felt longer, being that I was awake, but it was quick. It made difference for me right away too. If you need a friendly place come back again and ask away or as i have found just simply post a note of kind words.
take care,
Truly,your "strange" friend,

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
