  • What do the pacemaker people say? Can they adjust it and make sure it is working properly.

  • Hi,

    Bobs right maybe you need it tweeked you should be having it checked every six months,I had mine in November followed by an ablation in February and due a second check in August.

    Mine seems to be ok as I feel great but these checks are done for that reason.

    Hope you get sorted.

  • Really nice to hear from you poppystorey but not so good that things aren't quite right, nor that there have been delays. I do hope you can get it sorted quickly.

  • Mine was the other way round. Ablation followed by pacemaker. You pacemaker clinic should be able to sort things out for you. Good luck.

  • mine is checked yearly but you should have number for pacemaker clinic for any problems good luck
