Pacemaker question

Hi All
   My 2nd ablation has left me with sick sinus syndrome & my EP will be deciding on whether to put a pacemaker in soon. I live in the UK. For those of you with a pacemaker, how long did you have to wait from the decision being made by your Dr, to when you had it put in? Days or weeks?

   Did your EP put it in or the registrar?

Many thanks
Jane

Hello. One of the problems my daughter suffered from was Sick Sinus Syndrome. (SSS)
Here rates (as a 6 year old) were in the 40s (mainly) to 60 range when she was active. The doctors kept track of that for about 2 years and it wasn't until she started having real problems with dizziness and presyncopy and her awake heart rates were in the 30s range that they put in a duel chamber pacemaker (Medtronic). We are in the States and it was her doctors that handled any registering, we didn't do anything like that,
