Hi there,
My son is having a pacemaker implanted in the next few weeks for a complete heart block. He is nearly 4.

I have 2 questions.

Firstly, a Dr diagnosed him as also having a soft murmur a couple if months ago, the we saw his cardiologist s couple of weeks later, who stated there was nomurmur, then last week we saw yet another Dr who again found a murmur. Can murmurs come and go within this short space of time, or did his cardiologist miss it?

Secondly, the cause of my son's heart block is still a mystery. He was born 6 weeks early and as such, I would have thought it would have been picked up then, instead it was found when doing his routine obs when he had an ENT virus when he was 2.

I had a tick bite a while before getting pregnant, which was removed carelessly. I have never had a Lyme Disease test, but understand this can be passed through the placenta and can cause complete heart block. Should this not be explored before pacing him, as I understand antibiotics can reverse heart blocks from Lyme Disease, or would it be too late for antibiotics to be of any use?

Kind Regards

I have a 3 yr old son. When he was about 6-8 mos old his Dr heard a murmur and said it would most likely fix itself, well last wk at his 3 yr physical a different Dr heard it as well. They sent us to a Ped Cardiologist he did an EKG and said it was borderline and the LT side of the heart seemed to be working harder then the RT side so he did an Ecko and said it was normal and it was justa harmless murmur that some kids have but I don t understand y the Ecko was borderline and the LT side is working harder that the RT? Should I get a 2nd opinion?
