My Dad is in a nursing home and very active. He has a heart valve problem that has been stable for a few years. Last night he complained about chest pains and he was shaking. He was transferred to the ER. Cardiologist called today, and if all goes as expected, they are planning on putting in a pacemaker tomorrow afternoon.
Dad’s heart rate is too slow, and the Doc said it is an electrical problem.
Anyone with experience with an elderly person having this done? What is the recovery time?
