Anyone else with Predominantly cardioinhibitory automically mediated syncope

Hi I had a pm op last Thursday and was just wondering if there are other people out there with a pacemaker for the same condition as I have? Would be good to know how it’s helped. Feeling quite down at the mo and just wanted to focus on future a bit. 

 

Thanks

Syncope

by Adygriff - 2019-08-16 07:08:19

I had to look that up! I have a heart arrhythmia that sometimes causes bradycardia and leads to syncope. I had a few episodes of waking up in the park with my dogs liking my face, It took some time for my Cardiologist to narrow it down and eventually implant a PM in my chest. I had mine at the beginning of June this year and I haven’t had any more episodes yet and i do feel loads better. It does however, take time. I have read threads on here people saying it takes time for your body and the PM to adjust to each other and I certainly found this to be the case...The post op stuff takes a while to get over, my op site was sore and sensitive for 6 weeks or so, but it does get better... I am now finding that i am less anxious, feel more alert and i am functioning better than i have in a long time, I just need the DVLA to give me my driving licence back and all will be good. Still thinking it’s probably the best thing that happened to me this year. :)

I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
