Brand new to the PM community. Got my leadless about a week ago and processing and accepting being a 35 year old with a robot in my chest. Since my surgery I've been feeling flutters in my heart rate. They usually happen during periods of rest when I'm just sitting there and almost always come in sets of 2. I've never felt these until now. I had my follow up appointment with my cardiologist a few days ago and the report said it was pacing 0% of the time. Is the...
they are adding a lead to my boston scientific unit. what should i expect in terms of the procedure and the recovery vs the original placement? thanks in advance
Just rec'd a Pvt Msg from a long-time member i London - Janey L. She just last week successfully navigated a procedure to have an RV lead removed, a third lead installed and a CRT-D implanted. Took them 5 hrs. Recovering very well she reports.
Let's all wish her the very best in the
I had a pacemaker installed this week and I am wondering if I will be able to train Muay Thai with a heavy bag after the required healing period of 3 months. I usually workout for ten, two minute rounds, with one minute rest between where I punch, elbow, kick, and knee a 150lb bag. My concerns are as follows:
1) I hit the bag hard - Is there a potential of knocking a lead off my heart? Should I reduce punching power to the bag? Just tap it?
2) The arm motion...
I just had an odd episode while trying to fall asleep. I have a duel chamber PM by Medtronic (2nd degree heart block). I laid on my left side and felt my heart beating insanely fast, like palpitations. I started to move around and get a little antsy. As I sat up to check my pulse, I felt woozy and had that “pass out feeling” - similar to the interrogation feeling when they turn it off to run tests. I feel better now as I type this but still feel odd, like warm s...
I am now seven (7) weeks post- implant. After the EP doctor told me that " everyone feels better" after pacemaker, i told him i did not think this is " true." I have read many comments about 1) lightheadedness 2) headaches, 3) rapid heart rate. I have experienced all of the above. As of today 1 and 2 have dissipated, but my reating heart rate is averaging 78 bpm. Before pacemaker due to missed beats, heart rate was 48 bpm. This new heaart rate made me jittery and uncomfort...
Good day, I have only had my pacemaker for four days and have noticed my blood pressure has climbed, at rest to 153 over 94. Also my heart rate has climbed to 75.
I have always had good pressure, but a low heart rate, hence the operation. Had anybody had these same symptoms after your operation?
Many Thanks, Norm
Received PM January 24 . Have tingling underarm most of time is this from pm or maybe a aggravated nerve? Keep thinking it will go away or my imagination is taking over?
Has anyone heard if this is still going on?
I haven't heard anything about it for years and YEARS. That's not normal in such cases, is it? Has it been withdrawn or thrown out?
Hi there, had my pacemaker fitted 7 weeks ago and I have had constant hot sweats day and night since the procedure. Has anybody else experienced this? Haven't had my first pacemaker check as yet due to the cancellation of my 6 week check up because of the really bad weather so haven't been able to ask the professionals.
Hi, my daughter is 10 yrs old and the cardiologist said that she needs a pacemaker to be implanted. Anyone had experienced this pls at this age? How does children cope with it? Can they do sports, excersise continue with normal life? what about violin playing does it effect?
Thanks for any inforamtion you might give
Hi. Does anyone know about pacing when an AF suppressor is switched on? I've had mine switched on a week now and seem much more breathless. Pacemaker seems to switch between 64 and 120. It didn't do this before. I would have periods of AF and then the pacemaker would take over at 64. Any other experience would be helpful!
Hi there, I’m positive (due to random intense butterfly wings) that my Merlin has missed some of my arrhythmia activity. I’ve experienced it and has it reviewed by download at my EP’s office however nothing was found on download. This happened again today. What concerns me is that IST and AFib were found at my last EP visit last year and I’ve been remote monitoring for three years. These new arrhythmia were missed. It concerns me as I’ve had VT historically. Has...
I had my pacemaker put in about 8 months ago and very happy with it. My query is I was wondering if anyone has heard of a connection between having had polio and arythmia. I had non paralytic polio as child which has left me with muscle fatigue.

Tracey & Grateful: Cleared, eh...
...it's only an evanescent figment of my imagination. I'll be in deeper doo-doo before the day is out.
Just got another Whoops! See, Tracey, I've been banned, I guess. Does this ban incude Bahston, Mass? If so, no big deal. I've been banned in a lot less classier places than Beantown. Or - maybe I've come up in the World? Finaly Bahston recognized that I exist. Gee, I ca...
67 Y.O. Male: I had chronic A-Fib for decades. cardio version did nothing, all the meds we all have been prescribed to regain sinus rythym did nothing, after ablation and implanting(12 months ago) a St Jude ICD, the Dr's at Mt Sinai in Miami kept me on the pre implant A-fib medication regimine. Xeralto (rivaroxiban), carvedilol, and lisinopril. My hreart now beats at a consitent 60 BPM even after strenuous exercise, nothing seems to affect an increase, it is somewhat bizarre to...
Just an observation. Is this the same doctor who put one in upside down? If it is...and he didn't suture this one in place?? He wouldn't be doing my next procedure.
Donr....looks like you are in the clear. :)
