Dual Chamber Pacemaker

I have been around this site for awhile looking at different subjects. Just had a dual chamber fitted for sinus node dysfunction felling ok now just a little sore. PM set to 60BPM actually feel pretty good came in with heart rate around 34 to 37. Everyting staying around 59 to 60 BPM no lighheadedness yet. Excited to get rid of those lightheaded, fatigue and over all related symptoms. Will keep the club updated on my recovery. Hope i can keep this positive attidude moving forward.

Welcome to the club! As time goes by and you’re over the first month of recovery, you’ll love the new energy and not having to worry about feeling faint etc. I was in a very similar situation with my wonky sinus node and things had gotten so bad, i was petrified of going out on my own, forfear of fainting.. now, 6 months post implant, it’s like all of that was a lifetime ago! Keep us posted and hope you have a speedy and flawless recovery!

Welcome to this select club. 

There are over 1 million pacemaker folk world wide.

The vast majority experience both an increase in quality of life  and a longevity that would not otherwise be assured. 

A few days after my pacemaker insertion I was out riding my bicycle at some speed and distance as I was not allowed to drive my car for a week! I remain active with exercise.

If you look at the upper right corner for the search facility you can see, using this facility,  that this club site has many posts about exercise and PMs/ICDs. Sometimes, as we post problems, we don't post enough about the benefits, and so I am pleased to hear that you are feeling much better.

 

Thanks

Thank you for the kind words and advice. Have been feeling great since surgery heart rate has been pretty much perfect. I feel alot warmer to, so not sure if my low heart rate made me cold all the time but warm now. Now just researching on here how to take a shower without effecting site.
