Hi everyone!

Just here to introduce myself...and I must say, I'm quite thankful that a club like this exists! So far, the information that I've learned has been extremely helpful, especially in calming my nerves.

Please, drop me a line...would adore meeting you!

Welcome to the club! Communicating with others who have or are going through the same thing as you is very helpful. It certainly has been for me.

welcome to the PM Club

Hey John, Welcome to PM Club! Do you have a PM or ICD already, or are you about to get one? What brought you to us? Anyway, welcome, and we look forward to getting to know you. This site has been a godsend for me and I've learned an enormous amount from it, gotten lots of support, and have made far fewer phone calls to my EP as a result of this forum. People here are so generous in answering questions and sharing their experience. We hope you'll join in the discussion. Let us know more about your situation if you feel like it. I got my first PM almost 5 months ago and it's been quite a different experience than I thought it would be before the surgery. Thank goodness we have Blake and his PM Club to help us all along! Take care, Cathryn

Hello John I m Colleen, and you have joined an elite bunch of people! We all have something in common so when you sign in it is like coming to visit family. I hope in time you will consider us as an extended one! I have a ICD/PM, two weeks ago i was zapped! Believe me when i came online. I sounded like a complete frantic crazy woman, but after tthe people here calmed me down i was ok again...still a bit crazy, but thats not the pm...lol...Anyway hope we can all help each other.

Stay Well, Colleen

Hi John,
This site was a life saver for me after I got home from the hospital with a pm. I learned things here that the doctors never told me. What a relief, it is informational and encouraging. Do you have a device? Planning on it?
Take care friend,

Hi John, welcome to the club...these are amazing people who post here. I have never meet anyone in person but it is great to have a supportive family out there. I don't know one person who has a PM so I thought I was the only person in this situation until I found the club. Rest assured everyone here cares and will help in many ways.

I just want to share about the quality of life after my pacemaker, and hopefully increase awareness that lifestyles do not have to be drastically modified just because we are pacemaker recipients.
