Rejoining the club
When I had my transplant, my ICD was removed. Then recently I started to have fainting episodes so the transplant team organised a 48 hour monitor by post, which I duly wore and posted back on Monday. First thing today they rang to say we have a bed for you - please come in to have a pacemaker implanted. You have heart block. No details - waiting for the consultant - 7but I'm all prepped and waiting for a slot in the lab.
You know you're wired when...
You make store alarms beep.
I am 100% pacemaker dependant and have been all my life. I try not to think about how a little metal box keeps me alive - it would drive me crazy. So I lead a very active life.
