Replacement surgery tomorrow
I'm scheduled to have my pacemaker replaced tomorrow. I've had this one (my first one) for almost 11 years. I went for a checkup back in March and they said come back in 6 months. Went last week and they told me it should have been replaced in June.
I have no pain tolerance at all and was wondering about recovery time with the replacement. I work at a sit down office job, although I do have to reach over my head from time to time during the day. I figured taking one week off would be enough.
Anyone care to share their experience with me?
