5 days post op chest pain
Hey all, thanks for being here!
I had a medtronic dual pacemaker placed 5 days ago. Since then I have diffuse chest pain on any exertion, more on the right than the left. I don’t feel any better as far as shortness of breath or fatigue than I did before. Now add the chest pain and it is worse! I have an annoying cough, my left boob is now bigger than the right and I am “burpy”. All new stuff 😕 I am set to 60 with adjustments for activity. I can feel the raise in hr when doing something. Maybe it is just an adjustment phase to go through but I am a stubborn 56 year old Irish girl with things to do!
Taking otc meds for pain and helps a bit but not the activity chest pain. I have burning in my left shoulder also so laying down is my most comfortable position. Can’t do that forever!
Also still having the occasional pvc My blood pressure ( I have resistant hypertension on 4 meds) is all over the place. 100’s to 160’s
anyone with a similar story that has any advice?
I don’t want to regret this decision. Pacemaker was for bradycardia and Chronotropic incompetence.
thank you for any responses 🙂
