Replacement PM and new 3rd wire
Last year I started getting fluid buildup but was focused on issues my Mom was having so pretty much ignored my symptoms, shortness of breath. Anyway Mom died in Jan and I finally got my symptoms looked at. Turns out by then I was in heart failure, left EF down to 10%.
I've had my current 2 wire Medtronic PM since 2013, due to total AV block. Also got arrhythmia about a year ago.
My Dr put me on Entresto and a couple of other heart meds, did an angiogram (no blockages), PET scan with nuclear stress test. After a couple of months on the new meds my EF was up to 25% and I'm feeling pretty good, comparitively. Dr feels that I need a 3rd wire installed and a new PM, my current one's battery life is getting down to about 6 months. My old 2 wires have been good so far.
So I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions or things I should be concerned about. Any info would be appreciated.
