Hi, not posted for ages. Has anyone had experience of having pacemaker fitted for one arrhythmia (bradycardia, heart block) and then after fitted start to get a different arrhythmia (tachycardia)? Just trying to find out if this is normal and PM settings need adjusted or unusual to be happening. Cardiologist wants a holter monitor fitted to track what heart is now doing. Thanks for any advice.

Just to set the context first, is it the case that you are talking about your child? What you describe is not unusual in adults, but I have no knowledge of this in children and I am very cautious about giving you information or using terminology that may be inappropriate. I believe like many that knowledge is power, but I wonder if at this stage a discussion with your GP is the best way forward.
Yes it is my child. I’m just trying to determine if normal PM setting adjustments needed. Cardiologist has already said doesn’t think it’s to do with pacemaker. It’s been an up and down road to get to this point so want to have as much information as I can. So I can Investigate and read up on things before it all goes crazy again with lots of visits to hospital. I hate how they talk jargon and then o become clueless.
That’s great, thanks. I’ll look at these and get a knowledge for them. I’m no doctor either however I feel you need to read things or else it can just run away and got left clueless. I’ve been here before identifying what was causing his paroxysmal heart block. We still don’t know. His tachycardia had a sudden drop to low and this has triggered to get more investigations done. Thanks always grateful for information to investigate.
