Hi, I just stumbled upon this site when searching for the best bra to buy post pacemaker. I had an emergency pacemaker implanted three days ago and the implant site is of course very sore. I wear a 38D bra and can't go around without one for much longer and wanted to know if anyone has any advice on what specific bra has been comfortable for them.
On a side note, altough I feel fine, normal and simply sore from the procedure and the way I have to sleep right now, my emotions are on level 10 out of 10. I'm not normally emotional so this is alarming to me. I'm hoping that this is just a result of the trauma of it all, as it was sudden, but wanted to get your feedback. I'm a 58 year-old otherwise healthy female, married for 38 years, mother of 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren, essentially no stress to speak of in my life. I have an easy desk job that I enjoy and supportive family around. This hit out of the blue over the weekend and by Monday I was in the ambulance to the nearest cardiologist 100 miles away. It's Friday now and I'm home recovering. The one think I've learned is that no matter how many times the doctor tells you this procedure is the least of the heart procedures, it's still a heart procedure and its discomfort is underrepresented in print. I know this too shall pass, and I'm just brand new at all of it, but I'd be interested in knowing how long it took you guys to be pain free and normal again. Any advice on recovery would be appreciated.
Thank you so much for your help!
