In brief: It shouldn't

There are multiple types of heart block.
These range from benign congenital blocks where there is no significant impact to heart function to blocks where a pacemaker is required. Even if you were one of the rare people who required a pacemaker - with modern pacemakers, normal heart function and the ability to perform your usual daily activities is the expected outcome.
