My father had a pacemaker fitted yesterday and this morning he woke up at 6AM with his heart rate at 132 BPM and was shaking. The hospital gave us a number to call, we left a message but they never returned the call. He went to see the GP as he as he is scared of the hospital, seen enough family go there and not return. The GP said that it can happen after surgery and not to worry, I'm worrying anyway, is this typical?
His pulse went down to 35 afterwards before returning to 60. The problem in the first place was that he was fatigued pretty much all of the time. It took 6 years to get this pacemaker, to finally acknowledge and diagnose his problem and not just say your old, live with it.
