Hope you feel better soon! Sorry you are having a time of it with those pesky PACs. And I am so sorry you got layed off. Can you get COBRA for a length of time until you can get another job? I haven't had any arrhythmia since I had my ablation last May. But I have to say I still have a lot of fatigue...just really out of shape.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi, the monitors went well and all said my heart was fine, I still get those scary PSVT's, but, I guess they will always be with me, I am thankful they are not as bad as some folks are. How are you doing?
No, no meds, they are not that bad, but, the few I have are scary. A loop monitor is different from a holter, the holter goes for 24 hours, the loop, goes from a week to a month, depending on what the doc orders. You press a button when you feel something, then, when there are about 10 events, you call it in, then, clear it and start over. You put the little machine over the mouthpiece of the phone and it takes 20 minutes for it to get transmitted. I will be glad to start it and get it over with.
