New Pacemaker for Second Degree Heart Block - Type II
Hello: Just to introduce myself. I'm aged 62, and I had a pacemaker installed 2 days ago for a Heart Block which had caused dizziness for a number of years. I live in Cheshire in the UK. Have been reading posts on here for a couple of weeks to get me into the flow of my new life with a pacemaker. I am very optimistic that this is the new me and want to feel positive about it. I go back to the hospital (Wythenshawe) in 3 weeks for a pacemaker check. Had a pretty poor night last night as I felt like my heart was thumping away. Not sure if its all the medication for the procedure which they gave me (sedation, antibiotic, Fentanyl etc), or if it is the pacemaker getting used to me. I hope this will dissapear in time. Anyway, happy to be here at "The Club".
