upcoming implantation of pacemaker
I'm 67 years old. Had an ablasion done 13 years ago which caused a second degree heart block 24 hours after the procedure. I was advised by all the doctors to put a pacemaker right then but decided not to do it. I never fainted or felt dizzy. At that time my pusle averaged at 45 bpm and now it's more 35. I have been strongly advised to finally have the pacemaker put in. The issue I'm struggling with is wether to put under the muscle or under the skin. The appearance really matters to me but safety is also important. Any advice? I'm pretty scared to do it all together. I've been living a normal life all this time with limitations of walking uphill and occasional sensation of skip beats.
