Dear Concerned Mother
I am sorry to hear your son needed a pacemaker at a young age. After repetitive blackouts over a period of three weeks it is possible that he suffered some brain damage, but his “personality change” after the pacemaker may simply be a psychological reaction to having a pacemaker at a young age. It would be a good idea for him to be seen by a neurologist and if necessary a psychologist so that the problem can be sorted out. A lot will depend on how long he remained unconscious during each of his blackouts.
I hope things go better for him.
Best wishes, JT
