I just returned home from hospital after having my Biotronik dual valve pacemaker installed. Surgery went well I think it took about two hours and they ended up putting me completely out. Anesthesiologist said doctor was very precise .He placed closer to arm under collar bone so I can still wear low cut blouses I guess...
I spent the night and was released this morning . Pacemaker tech checked me this morning and said it was working fine. It used 49 percent last night meaning it turned on quite a bit when I slept.
Left message for doc to ask about suture area which is covered but swollen to the side like a lump figured might be normal but want to make sure.
Feel pretty good but going to be hard using only one hand
To all of you pending surgery not bad and the relief knowing it is over... moving forward
Best of Luck!
You know you're wired when...
Airport security welcomes you.
I finished 29th in London in 2 hours 20 minutes 30 seconds which is my fastest with or without a device so clearly it didnt slow me down ! I had no problems apart from some slight chaffing on my scar - more Vaseline next time.
