I posted last week about twitches in my chest and missed heart beats. I went to the doctor today and had my pm interrigated. It's been 2 months since the pm was put in and today they turned the voltage from 5 to 2.5. It was amazing how the tech could create the tic on demand for me. So that should be solved.
The missed beats I was feeling were after I exercised. Turns out I had an upper rate of 130. They moved it up to 160. Afterwords they put me on a holter monitor and when I ran 30 minutes I had no missed beats.
I think she also told me my atrium is 70% paced and my ventrical is negligable.
I'm greatly encouraged today. I know it can all go south pretty fast, so I'll take it one day at a time and enjoy today.
thanks to all those who responded to my other post. It always brings relieg and comfort

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
