Hi, I am 39 years old and was just diagnosed with AFIB. I was diagnosed with it in the emergency room 02/16/17 and have had issues with it before I ever went to the E/R but didn't know it. It just progressively has got worse to the point I had to go to the E/R. Now my cardio doctor says that I am going into afib too much and he thinks i need an ablation. All of this is scary.... and from what I have been reading I think it looks like I may need a pacemaker as well. My heart rate is usually mid 55 to low 50s normally. Can you tell me what the resting rate should be for a pacemaker ? I meet with my EP at the end of April and I am nervous about what he is going to tell me.
