I had my Bostom Scientific Accolade implanted on November 8, 2023 and was able to come home the following day. I was diagnosed with Winchebach 2, as well as right and left branch bundle block three years ago and during my visit with the cardiologist last month, my problem had reached the point where a pacemaker would be needed. I had no stamina and had to take three to four naps a day just to perform my basic routines. I am amazed at how well my heart beats now. I used to count the beats between the skipped beat as I fell asleep. Now, my pulse is steady. The incision pain waxes and wanes and I am looking forward to getting back on my fitness routine over time. I was so pleased to find this site before my pacemaker. It makes me feel much better to know that you all understand how I feel and the prognosis for the future. Thank you for being there.
You know you're wired when...
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.
