PVC's after AV Node abaltion
Hi everyone - I had an AV node ablation on 28th March, having had the pacemaker implanted prior to this in February. After the AV node was ablated the rate was set to 80 - this I understand is to prevent develpment of Ventricular Tachycardia.
All was going ok - except I was getting a fast rate on increased movement - but this was remedied at my pacemaker 6 week check. One of the sensors was lowered and all was well. The rate was reduced to 70 at this point.
Now, 10 days ago - I have suddenly started having awful bouts of PVC's. Got an emergency check up with the device clinic who confirmed it was PVC's. They are thinking about some meds - but I am not hopeful that this will help.
Why is this happening? Has anyone else experienced it? I wonder if the rate should have been left at 80 for longer.
