Acute bronchitis almost three months after implantation
I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right subforum. However, I posted for the first time a few months back before my surgery nervous and all.. update: the surgery went well. I was in pain, of course, for a couple weeks. It still feels uncomfortable depending on how I'm laying.
I currently am super sick. I got diagnosed with acute bronchitis yesterday and the doctor gave me antibiotics. I woke up several days in a row last week with a sore throat and a couple days ago I lost my voice completely. My chest feels heavy and it kinda hurts. No fever as far as I know. Coughing lots of mucus. I'm also seeing thick mucus and occasionally blood when I blow my nose..
My concern is this.. a month after my surgery, I went to the device clinic for a check up and they said everything looks good even my scar was healing "nicely". Shortly after I left.. I noticed clear liquid oozing from the wound and eventually saw pus. I couldn't make an appointment due to insurance needing a new referral. I haven't seen the doctor since. The pus went away on its own & the wound is now closed.
Please give me some reassurance. I'm worried that I'm experiencing late onset symptoms of a pacemaker infection. Is it possible to experience symptoms from an infection months later? Or should I just wait and see how long my cold/bronchitis last? Thank you.
