I recently found this site and was glad to see all the optimism and positive information about PMs and heart disease. I have read about 20 threads and feel there are many people here that can be of assistance to me and others with questions and concerns.
I am 29 years old, and just had a PM implanted 2 weeks ago. After the first week of headaches and soreness past, I began to feel so much better! I still have to take it easy though, as not to disrupt the leads of course. For someone who has loves any activity, it is hard to stay sedentary for long periods of time. I am itching to go for a ride on my motocycle, jump in the ocean, play basketball, or get back into my workout routine. I took an online class to keep me busy, but we all know how boring American National Governmnet can be ;)
Any suggestions on how best to pass the time would be great!!
Also, feel free to drop me a story, a tip, or lessons you have learned that may be helpful in my new journey...
In case you are interested in the quick version of my history, here it is...:
I had ASD repair when I was 4, developed flutter, then bradiacardia later in life. Tried ablation, but my flutter was located in the left atrium, so they would have to punch through the ASD repair to fix it, and didn't want to do that. So I take cumodin daily for the flutter, and now have a Medtronic PM, as to keep my HR above 30-40.
Thanks to all,
