I just found this site by way of the Medtronics site.
On February 7 I had open heart surgery to take care of 5 bypasses. On May 5 I had my first bout of AF that lasted about 8 hours. After a few days I was released to go back to work as a truck driver then on Memorial Day weekend had my second AF bout. This one only lasted about 90 minutes but it put me off work again.
This past Monday I had my PM implanted set at 60 bpm. It's a Medtronics Enrhythm. The Medtronics rep said that no other features would be turned on until the 3 month mark but yet there have been a couple of times when I have felt a bit dizzy when I first stand up. Is this normal or will they go ahead and do something to my PM to help prevent this? It's almost like my heart isn't keeping up with what I'm doing. My doctor's nurse said that I could go ahead and walk my 2 miles a day and I do with no problem. 90% of the time I feel fine. Of course I still have the post op sorness but nothing else to complain about yet.
