Posted a few days ago (Too much, too quick) Nearly three weeks since op, the odd ache dizzy spell etc since then but yesterday afternoon became very dizzy, sick and numbness in my neck and from my knees downwards, Could not stand it any more so rushed up to the hospital in the evening. Put on oxygen straight away and blood tests were taken, after two or so hours every test came back ok, and despite still feeling rotten they sent me on my way. I dont think they were overly concerned because they told me if it happens again come back to the outpatient department and not emergency! What Im wondering is perhaps like Rusty, (who seems to have a similar condition to me) I may have suffered a panic attack, any views from you would be grateful. One little note of interest Ive noticed from this site is that no matter where in the world you are the advice we seem to have from our doctors of what will happen to us after the op is very minimal. This seems to be backed up by the fact that this site seems to have 4 or 5 hundred people reading our posts at any one time, grasping for any info, myself included!

I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
