I have Afib, average about 1 episode a month. I had ablation in 2010 but it was not successful. My regular heart doctor suggests that I should have pacemaker now. In 2010 my heart surgeon ( the one who did the ablation for me) told me that he did not suggest his patients having pacemaker because it would bother a lot and that because the pacemaker was not the same rhythm with my real one. My niece who works in the heart center also advises her grandmother not to have the pacemaker, just take medicine to control the symptoms...
I would like to know if anyone who has pacemaker, please let me know how pacemaker works. and in case if it doesn't work, can the pacemaker be removed?
Thank you very much.
