I went to get my pacemaker checked again today. All is well, but the technician has adjusted the settings slightly to see if we can avoid the strange ‘time delay’ phenomenon. This, (apologies if I’ve told you before) is where my heart beat is really slow when I’m trying to go up a hill, for example, but then speeds up once I’ve reached the top of the hill. I suppose it’s delayed reaction rather than time delay. The technician thought it might be to do with the response rate settings, which would make sense, but actually these seem fine. She thinks it might be something else, which she did explain to me but it was a bit technical and I didn’t quite understand it. I know I should have asked her to explain it again, but I didn’t. Anyway, she has adjusted the settings for this aspect of the pacemaker’s function, so we shall see. It’s actually been a lot better recently. Perhaps it just takes a long time to get used to me. I can’t say I blame it.
