Are you 100% Ablated with pacemaker
Looking for persons who are 100% Ablation and reliant on pacing devices. Please respond,. . .  Lets compare notes . . . seems hard to find and talk to others in this same boat. I am 15 months in this condition and wondering if there are any others living semi normal lives.

if you don't find alot with pm's on here google pacemaker or icd support groups and see if you can find a more specific group like http://www.icdsupportgroup.org/board/  I know alot of us there have pm/icd combo's and some are 100%


good luck

Hi.  I have experience with this procedure.  I had one after having 4 ablations for AFib and AFlutter.  My AVJ (av node) was performed in March 2009.  It was the best decision I have made and I would do it all over again.  I had just turned 60 when I went through the procedure.  I already had a pacer so I did not have to have one implanted at the time.  I have since had the pacer switched out as it was time to do so.  I am 100% paced and have very little difficulty doing anything I wish to do.  I sail on the San Francisco Bay, go to the gym, walk, etc and have no probs.  I got my first pacer in my early 50s but I know folks who got them in their 20s.  I am off all meds except for coumadin.  I do still have AFib but my pacer beats like the dickens to pace me out of AFib and does a great job doing so.  I used to feel every AFib event and every PAT, PAC etc.  Now I rarely feel the arrhythmia.  That is good for me.  I have energy and have my life back.  My only regret is that I didn't do this procedure much earlier.
  It took me about 5 months to make the decisions to go ahead with the procedure. I was tired of feeling crappy so I saw that the benefits far outweighed the risks.  Life is good.
