Does a pacemaker insertion cause severe fatigue?

my husband had a pacemaker inserted on Wed late afternoon. He was monitored in the hospital overnight and discharged on Thursday. Everything looked good. He is exceedingly tired with no energy. Is this normal? He also had a blast to a kidney stone on Tuesday so has had to pass the stone fragments. Thanks

Hi,

Weakness may be due to insufficient heart rate or he may have developed urinary tract infection or other causes like anemia etcetera.

Please consult your doctor, he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
