Anyone else feel the pacemaker pacing a lot?
I am a 40 year old female 4 weeks post op. I am 100% dependent on the pacemaker as I have complete heart block. Everyday seems to get better but wanted to ask a couple of things to some of you who have had a pacemaker for a while. I can feel what I assume is the pacing a lot. It is very noticeable at random times of the day regardless of how active I am and very noticeable when I lay on my left side. Is this normal? Will I get used to it or will it go away? Also do you get used to having the pacemaker in the chest? It almost feels like it is in the way when I move my arm and just uncomfortable. Overall glad it saved my life and almost instantly my heart felt better!
