New CRT-P

Thursday, I had my 20 month old Pacemaker replaced with CRT-P.  I am coming up on 48 hours with new Pacemaker and so far not enjoying it.  My resting heart rate has been in high 90’s with going up to 120 with a slow walk.  My PVC’s are just about constant.  I do not know if this is just my heart adjusting, are the settings all wrong or should I go to Emergency.  Any of you smart people out there have some experience with this?

New CRT-P

I also have a CRT-P.  Your symptoms sound bad enough that you should get back to the clinic that did your implant so they can re-assess the settings on your device.  It took 2 or 3 tries after my CRT-P implant over a period of a week for them to get it dialed in.  Good luck!

My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
