HI all: I've been researching my butt off this forum and you are all wonderful. I do this to seek answers for my Mum and I'm hoping to find some other answers / suggestions here. Thank you for listening.
OK Mum, 77, Groovy, active, fit. Ablation performed July 14, 2017. PM Implant next day (Medtronic Dual Chamber PM). Since that day total breathlessness. Heart rate set at 70. 6 Days Later reset to 60 but feeling dreadful and EP suggested he do the AV Node Ablation the next day. Done. So 3 operations in a week but she's a trooper.
Only problem is that she has continued breathlessness. No energy. Nauseous in the morning. I cannot find any answers. Everyone says that she should be fine by now. Quality of life - pretty crappy for an active person.
Has had High Blood Pressure all here life. Cardiologist seems to think that she has Sick Sinus Syndrome now. The Cardio and EP are some of the best in their field so yes I feel confident but then I don't as we still don't have answers.
Feeling desperate for my Mum. And no, she's not anxious as we've been through this. She isn't that kind of a person. She's angry cause she wants her life back.
Sorry for the long rant, thanks for listening and I hope to hear from you all - such wise people.
Any suggestions would be greatfully received.
