Evaluation for Pacemaker
I was diagnosed with Complete Heart Block at age 2 and haven’t experienced any symptoms or had any interference with my daily activity.
Each year I complete a 24 hr holter and regularly have echo’s and/or stress tests to monitor my condition.
Now at age 30 my recent holter reading about 3 months ago showed an increase in PVC’s from about 4 a day to 87. Based on this my doctor has requested I meet with him next week to discuss a pacemaker, My stress test results were great, reaching over 100% of my target heart rate and completing 14.5 min of the 15 min test.
I did complete an additional 48 hr holter so we can see any changes in the last 3 months at my upcoming appointment.
A bit apprehensive about the pacemaker since I am not sure I will experience any increase in quality of life.
Wondering what questions you would recommend asking my doctor or any opinions on benefits I could see!
Thank you in advance.
