Pacemaker Adjustment time
Well I go in for my 1st checkup this Thursday. I have a Ton of Anger to let go on my Doctor. They had the initial settings all wrong! I had to go to the Emergency department a week ago. They had my Movement sensor set to maximum. I couldn't scratch my ASS without getting a 95 Heartrate. Also my return Heartrate was set to 10 minutes which meant that if I walked up my stairs and my Heartrate went up to 100 and I then sat down it took 10 minutes before my Rate would start to return to 60. Plus I have a Occasional PVC with a pause. The Medtronic Tech changed the settings so immediately after a PVC my Pacemaker would Fire my Atrium and normal heartbeat without a pause anymore. The Medtronic Tech was absolutely blown away at the post Surgery settings they had set!! Anyone else go through something like this?? Oh also the Medtronic Tech reset my Return Heartrate to 2:30. That helped so much.

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.
