I’ve literally only just stumbled across this site by chance tonight and after reading some public posts, saw how positive everyone was and felt like i wanted to be a part of this group.
I had my first pacemaker fitted 4 years ago but unfortunately had a car accident 11 days later which caused it to tear from the ‘pocket’ so had it repositioned under GA 4 months later.
I was 29 when I first had it fitted and had no history of any heart problems within the family prior to mine. I’m 33 now and have recently met a new partner who has asked questions regarding my pacemaker and me. I just don’t have the answers. I think as I was so young when I had it fitted, I kind of went along with things rather than asking relevant questions.
Is my life affected by this? Or am I able to live a normal, full life? Is my life expectancy the same as everyone else my age? What makes me different? If anything?
Please help me answer some questions that I can’t even begin to answer for myself, never mind anyone else!!
Thanks in advance!
