I had my PM implanted Dec.11,2019. I go tomorrow for my first cardiologist follow up appointment (I have seen my PCP already). I am hopeful my driving restrictions will be lifted. I got a little anxious yesterday when I was lightheaded for about 15 minutes and my pulse went to 118 just walking, but it went away fairly quickly, but will mention it to my doctor. Much of the time I dont think about the PM and go about my day. Caught myself strecthing my left arm above my head a few times and waiting for the microwave to finish up while standing in front of it. looking forward to increasing activity and exercise soon. I'm thankful to have this forum. It has helped calm my anxieties and the feeling that I'm alone in this. My family is very supportive but they don't quite get things like the people here do. Hoping 2020 for all is healthy and happy!!!

I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
