WOW,can't beleive I have a Pacemaker ????Her I am with a pacemaker/defib implant in my chest. A few months ago I would have laughed at such a thought. I thought I was a healthy 66 yr.old Alaskan. Active with my sled dogs, living a remote Alaskan life style. No real clear warning of what was to come. I was alittle tired over the last few months,but put that off as maybe showing my age.LOL Anyway,thanks to a good VA Doc,we found out that my heart has an injection fraction of 20-25%.....SERIOUS. Arteries are clear,so all they could do is go the pacemaker route.Have hade it four exactly 5 days and doing OK. Eating well and trying not to get depressed over this. My days of cutting firewood, building things around the property are on hold for now.
My first check up, post implant, is this coming Friday. Wish me well. Best wishes Tom in Alaska
