In the fall of 2015 I had pacemaker put in and in Dec an oblation of my heart was completed. It was the first time that I had a regular rate. In Nov another pacemaker was put in when the original was recalled due to battery malfunctions. While I was in the hospital, my cardiologist completed an exam to determine if there were other areas causing my heart to weaken. Nothing Now I am on Carvedilol My heart is weakened. What are my options?
