Hi Jane,

Have they said they are definitley going to do epicardially?

It's perfectly normal to be scared- when i got my pacemaker a couple of years ago I was terified!

The GUCH helpline is a 24 hour answerphone helpline. If you leave a message someone will call you back. The number is 0800854759 if you need to talk.

You could also call the Brompton and ask to speak to one of the liasion nurses there- the number is 02073518602.
