light headedness to near passing out. have now experienced afib. my doctor is recommending a pacemaker while continuing the metoprolol. shouldn't the metoprolol be stopped before surgery to establish a heartrate base line. my heartrate is low- 54 bpm at night, 64bpm day ?
A ICD is more in line with your situation that has a pacer built in, this will take care of your tachycardia and pace you if needed, and in all likelihood this is what your doctor was talking about. It will not do anything about Afib, that has to be a different medications or a ablation to correct it, so,ethi.g for you to talk over with your doctor and a cardiac doctor.
