Can’t believe I feel so awful
Hey there, so I'm 5 days from surgery to replace my 12 year old battery. It's been 7 days since my pacemaker switched to ERI. Nurse said I would have shortness of breath and won't feel good. I wish I had had better information about what that really meant. I am learning how to cope with the following:
weakness and getting easily fatigued from walking around the house, taking care of my cat and self, eating and showering.
SOB and dizziness are constant and hits even when I'm trying to sleep
I can't tolerate caffeine, getting overheated or taking the stairs.
It's disappointing that the system(my doctor and insurance) doesn't seem to care.
You know you're wired when...
You can finally prove that you have a heart.
You'll come to peace with it in time.
