Feel the Pace - Lead Revision to Bundle of HIS
I had a dual chamber Boston Scientific pacemaker installed back in May for Third Degree heart block as a result of an AVNRT ablation. My heart did not like the right ventricle pacing. One week ago today I under went a lead revision to replace the right ventricle lead with a bundle of HIS lead.
I am now pacing 100% in the HIS versus about 30-40% in the right ventricle. I immediately felt much better than I have since the pacemaker was implanted, the strength in my legs came back very quickly, my shortness of breath went away as did my constant nasua.
However, I can still feel the pacing as I could before. Can anyone else feel the pacing, mine feels like a very hard heart beat, I am not having any PVCs. Do you every get use to it, if so how long does it take? Does anything help?
You know you're wired when...
You have a little piece of high-tech in your chest.
I've seen many posts about people being concerned about exercise after having a device so thought I would let you know that yesterday I raced my first marathon since having my pacemaker fitted in fall 2004.
