Firstly, your heart condition would warranted a pacemaker so please do not think that you would
be better off without it. Your only young,and had this new little device 3 weeks. I had lots
of problems when I first got mine years ago. But I was 8
so I cannot remember what it was like to live without a pacemaker. Once its adjusted or changed
you will slowely get used to it. Its been years for me and each new pacer I have takes a little
getting used to. I still get PVC's but thats because my doctor feels I have some scar tissue
from old pacer leads. Please give yourself a chance. Its been 34 years for me and thanks
God and this little device I am still here to
tell my story.
I am 22 and I just got a pacemaker 3 weeks ago beacause my 5th ablation procedure failed. I just found out that it's not working, and I do get PVC's and some other kind of weird heart beat too. I am waiting for my doc to tell me what to do about it, but I don't have any expectations...Do you ever feel like the pacemaker causes more problems than you had without it? Sometimes I just want to take it out if I can't be "normal" with it in.
