New Pacemaker Question
Hi there! I'm scheduled to receive my first pacemaker this coming Friday. I had an ablation for AVNRT in December. The procedure didn't work and caused heart block (Wenckebach/Mobitz). I wasn't expecting the symptoms I have been experiencing for the last 7 months since the surgery (SVT, skipped beats, fatigue). I was told that I would feel "great" after my ablation. So the symptoms that followed have amped up my already high anxiety level. I was just wondering if anyone can tell me what I should expect to feel? Will I feel the pacemaker pacing in my chest? Will I feel erratic heart beats? Any advice on keeping anxiety under control?

I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
