Frequency of visits with EP
I am 38, have CCHB, and have been paced for 21 years. My pediatric EP retired about a year ago, so I was moved over to the adult clinic and am working with a new EP. I have seen him twice since switching doctors, but do not have another appointment scheduled and was told by his office that I will only be seen if I am having symptoms or if something unusual pops up on one of my remote pacemaker transmissions. Is this normal for adult care? I was seen by my pediatric EP at least once per year.
My current EP is an expert in lead extraction at a large hospital and has a high patient satisfaction rating. He spent a lot of time with me during my two appointmentsand answered all of my questions.
You know you're wired when...
You have a maintenance schedule just like your car.
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.
