I am a 77 yr old lady , ex RN ,,,,only retired five years ago ,,,
i have LBBB,an anteroseptal perfusion defect, a high serum calcium ,,sclerosis of valves ,, And just had a pacemaker implanted two weeks ago .for syncopal episodes ,,,
i had had cardiogenic shock during surgery age 30 , and unstable angina ever since ,,,,,,( 1970)
the thallium scan Dx the septal perfusion defect age 70!
All the last year i have been having syncope ,,,,with very serious effects ,,,
Falling totally unconscious each time, sometimes for a Couple of minutes
finally I persuaded my Cardiologist To insert loop recorder ,,which Dx the heart block ,,that wasn inserted on 8th Feb ,,And on 15 th Feb he had to implant a pacemaker ,,I m now recovering ,,,It is a Medtronic and I ha have a monitor beside my bed. Which transmits to a nurse technician when the heart stops beating
