Pacemaker

Pacemaker

I had a pacemaker put in about 8 years ago. Then about 5 years ago, I had that pacemaker removed and a defibrillator pacemaker put in its’ place. Am I the only one who didn’t feel any differently when each of my pacemakers were installed? I don’t faint anymore. That is about the only difference. As far as being aware of a pacemaker, I feel nothing. Maybe that is a good thing. Maybe I feel so well, maybe I don’t feel anything.

I am scheduled to have a pacemaker "installed" this month. I don't know what to expect and would like some insight from you. I have had 2 cardio conversions and an ablation within the past year and still have afib several times a week. Any insight is appreciated.

Does Anyone Have Afib With A Pacemaker And Pulmonary Hypertension?

Does Anyone Have Afib With A Pacemaker And Pulmonary Hypertension?

I have a pacemaker about 4 1/2 years due to afib and was diagnosed with COPD with pulmonary Hypertention. I've had asthma since I was 5 years old I am now 76 years old. I also had breast cancer 20 years ago. I also was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis about 8 yrs ago. Now between not breathing and heart failure I am exhausted and just miserable 24hrs a day. I want to turn the pacemaker. Any one else feel so defeated?

Mechanical Valve Heartbeat

Mechanical Valve Heartbeat

I'm pretty sure I asked something similar before, but does anyone have experience with one of the longer lasting mechanical heart valves? It's been brought up to my cardiologists many times and I have had very thorough work ups and things seem fine, but I still describe my heartbeat now as having the Jumanji drum beat on me constantly. At times it just feels so strong that it feels like it is kicking me in the Chest. I just need to know if that is something that others have experienced with the… read more

A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member

CRTD Implant Surgery

CRTD Implant Surgery

My cardiologist would like me to get an ICD implant but I have been too scared and indecisive. Now it appears I am a candidate for a CRTD implant which in addition to the defibrilator will improve my heart function and I'll feel better. I'm planning to give him the go ahead Monday. I was wondering if anyone here who has had this surgery can tell me what your recovery was like and if you regret getting one? Thank you.
