Hi @corjianne. I'm glad Teresa @hopeful33250 asked me to look in on your conversation. But I have to start by saying I have no first person involvement with Pacemakers. A brother-in-law had a Pacemaker installed and updated at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, but we have not discussed his experiences in detail. In addition, my wife recently contracted supraventricular tachycardia, and as a result, our house is building confidence in our own electrophysiologist for the first time. We're approaching a decision point on whether to have medication cardioversion procedure in June or July.
I can say, however, that the advice Teresa has provided is spot-on and will advance your chances for improved understanding of what's ahead with the new pacemaker-installation protocol. I also can strongly recommend that you pay close attention to anything you get from @kanaazpereira; she has unusually close connections to the cardiology teams at Mayo in Rochester. Martin
