Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
The pacemaker is inserted to normalize the rate and rhythm. So, with the pace maker, your sons bradycardia should have reverted to normal. If not it needs to be reassessed and this could be causing the syncope.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
