I am still wearing the event monitor but only for a few more days. The cardiologist’s nurse called yesterday to tell me that so far there is little or no sign of atrial fibrillation and they believe the drug that I am taking for that is working and probably shouldn’t be changed. There are a few occurrences of slow heart rate and it could be treated with a pacemaker but does not seem necessary unless the low rates make me uncomfortable or likely to pass out (I don’t get that feeling). There is an irregular heartbeat but again there is no recommended action unless it make me feel bad.
So, for now, I think we will just watch and wait.
