eight weeks is hardly an emergency so I wouldnt worry TBH.

There is quite a lot of it about - people doing 24hr recordings and then down loading. Big things about care at home etc. I am not sure that it doesnt anything besides make the pt feel good / worry them.

3 brothers ( inc me) have AF, my two sibs doing the recording bit, and we are all the same. "they can tell I am alive by the way I walk into the clinic room" ( me)

I would take that as a positive, all is well. 

Does he have a monitor by his bedside.? I was given one which plugs into the mains and sends signals to the hospital which installed the pacemaker.The hospital may have found a small irregularity detected. When he goes in they will most likely place a small box on his chest which will detect any problems.

I had a routine recall about 6 weeks after the procedure and all was fine. Strangely enough I noted my bedside monitor was resetting itself when I went to bed last night. It bleeped and everything/body carried on as normal. I would not worry at all.
