Mr Fruit went in to have a reveal device, fitted this morning, now they have decided he may need a pacemaker, waiting to confirm with the consultant, will this be a day surgery as the reveal device would of been, or anyone that's had this done is it an overnight stay.

Probably best to be prepared for  a couple of nights in case it needs adjusting.  Normally day case or just one night though

When MIL had it done she was in for 2 nights but that maybe because no one was at home to keep an eye on her.

I had a pacemaker fitted on 24th January. It's a day clinic job. Arrived at the ward at 0730 and was at home by 1730. If they tell you you can resume bloodthinners after 24 hours don't believe it. I made the mistake of resuming Rivaoxaban after 24 hours and spent four consecutive days in A&E and the cardiac day case ward. I have now resumed yesterday as the wound is still dressed but scabbing over nicely. Had my first shower yesterday. It was bliss.

Glad you are on the mend retro, Mr Fruit is not on blood thinners, he's takes a beta blocker, apparently he's just been told any children we have, need to get checked out for the same thing. (Still not 100% sure what the 'thing' is)

I think they told me to hold on the Bisoprolol prior to the procedure. They don't want any artificial heart rate whilst they tweak the box . My heart paused for 6 beats.If it had been 7 I would continually be flat on my face.  :-). That is why they gave me the pacemaker.

Mine was a day case - all my meds were adjusted before and after.  No probs.  Yearly check ups and tweaks if necessary.
