Only 4 days after PM op
Hi I am a newbie to this site and also to having a pm. I had op last Thursday.
I am 57, live in UK and all my life I have had Predominantly cardioinhibitory automically mediated syncope with a heart stop of 18 secs, although this was only fully and properly diagnosed 18 months ago. Finally 2 weeks ago I agreed to the pm and had the operation last Thursday.
I am still shocked that it has come to this although I clearly understand the help it can give me, although never a cure as I have both a blood pressure and a heart rate component.
My problem is coping now. I am terrified of pulling out the leads. How do you do things without lifting your left arm. How do I blow dry my hair? Put my hair in a ponytail etc silly things !!!
I have an induction range cooker which I have been told not to use. When it’s turned on and in use ( by my husband) how far away do I need to be?
How easy is it to pull out leads? And how would I know?
Sorry for all the questions.
