Hello! I can probably awnser any questions that you have, considering I am 13 and got my PM when I was 15 hours old. Some people on this site don't belive me, but eh, what do they know?

Thanks for response! Wow you are so young for a pacemaker! My problem was the experience of pain after the implant. I still get depressed about having a PM, but you have inpired me. Are you currently on any meds?

Thanks, Ben.

Hi! You are so welcome. Wow, I don't think I've ever inspired anyone before, but there's a first time for everything! No, I am not on any meds, and to my knowledge, have never been. I guess I'm lucky! The only time I really get depressed is when I can't play contact sports like fencing. I don't mean to burden you, but I think people on this site are shunning me for some reason. With a lot of my posts, no one even bothered to add a comment. A lot of people I email have not emailed back. I posted a message to Concerened saying that I forgave marisab and there was no comment. I even emailed her about a dozen times and still no response! Huh! Go figure. See ya!

Sorry I never got back to you sooner. I had to go back into the hospital last month to have my PM re-checked. Boy was I scared. I had chest pain and shortness of breath. They reset my PM and everything seems okay. I just got a new job 4 weeks ago, and it feels like I lost a lot of energy. My boss told me today that I semed lithargic. Well, being on all of these heart meds takes a lot out of me. Please e-mail me when you can.

A pacemaker completely solved my problem. In fact, it was implanted just 7 weeks ago and I ran a race today, placed first in my age group.
