Pacemaker Wenckebach

It’s been 8 months since my Pacemaker was implanted after an SVT Ablation period that resulted in Pacemaker insertion. I still haven’t been adjusted to where I am comfortable. I have had adjustments nearly every 2-3 weeks since implant. 

I’ve had Pacemaker induced Tachycardia that took awhile to detect because the the switch to prevent it was programmed to on. I was having retrograde beats that set it off. The latest issue is Pacemaker Wenckebach.  I can’t understand exactly what is happening and why.  Can anyone explain?

pacemaker Wenckebach is when you drop random beats. It can be prevented with pacemaker settings. 

You know you're wired when...

You run like the bionic man.

Yesterday was my first day mountain biking after my implant. I wiped out several times and everything is fine. There are sports after pacemakers!
