Oh my. I have had a pacemaker since age 23.Thanks, Sheenas7.
The journey isn't quite over yet -- I'm still fighting dizziness - maybe from the medications, possibly an inner ear problem, possibly a bit of each. It's probably not possible to see an ENT because of COVID-19 so we're having a 'video call' - a lot of good THAT will do me.
I'm currently wearing a seven lead holter monitor to check out my rhythm. (According to my Fitbit, my heartrate may have dropped to 37, briefly, yesterday, which means that I may need a pacemaker. Perhaps this was a Fitbit error.
I'll probably know in a few days.
Are we having fun yet?
I must say it protected me for so many years. It is a real safe feeling to have it. So don’t feel terrible if you need one. I had so many replacements over the years. I am pacemaker dependent so I have experienced a drop like that myself when the very old wire gave out. My wire was over 23 years old the last time I had to replace. It was in 2017. . So I have a wireless now and I feel very protected.
just saying if you need one, it’s an easy procedure and it totally protects you. Keep us posted. Good luck.
