Hi everyone. I'm 57 and fairly active. I just got my pacemaker implanted on April 24 (for an AV block Mobitz 2). I've definitely noticed a big improvement. However, I still experience "skipped" beats sometimes, usually when I'm doing something strenuous (going up stairs or working out). I also have started to experience light headedness if I get up abruptly. Do I need to have my pacemaker settings adjusted? If so, do you have any advice on what the settings should be? Thanks!
You know you're wired when...
You have a little piece of high-tech in your chest.
I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
