My mother is going into hospital today for an operation. She's having a pacemaker fitted, and we're hoping it will address the tendency to faint that she's recently had.

She was and it did, although we both know it is problematic when the only just informed - us - draw parallels between unrelated cases. On my mum's experience, I would be optimistic about the outcome. At their age (she was 80+) they aren't going to expend a surgeon's time and all that money unless they are confident of their diagnosis.

My Mum isn't quite that old - well, 80 within the fortnight.

It's been the thing most worrying us over the last few months (since the cancer was declared clear). It's good to hear about others in the same situation that it's helped.
