Hi all. Further to my previouse post about being told i have heart block and require a PM, I have had my letter from the cosultant, (the one he sends to my GP) and at the end it states that he is sure I will need a PM but he is concerned that looking at my ECG suggests that i may have LV dsyfunction also.
I had googled this and now I am scared. Does anyone have this and what does it really mean . Im reading that its not fixable and will get worse. Is this the case? And if the consultant thinks he can see it is it likely to be the case? Does LV dysfunction come with a shortened life expectancy?
Im hoping someone knows the answers as Im not back to the consultant till next wednesday!
Many thanks. x

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
