NON SUSTAINED VT
Hi hope everyone is well and enjoying the late sunshine in the UK.
I only pop in here occasionally to say hello as I am generally well, heading up towards 70 now, 13 years pacing and on my second device.
My bedside monitor was assessed recently, I've not seen a doctor for about 18 months, since I had my device replaced. Today I received a copy of a letter from the hospital to my GP stating that I had one episode of non sustained VT lasting 23 seconds and instructing the GP to give me a prescription for Bisoprolol 2.5mg once a day. I have been taking amolodopine and atorvastatin for 13 years with no ill effects.
I'm not overweight, swim 3-4 times a week, go to the gym a couple of times a week, look after grandchildren, dog walk and am generally fit and healthy.
Any comments or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Friends call you the bionic man.
I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
