Sharp jabs

Hi, I had a pacemaker put in on 3 April - not too bad, sore neck muscles in particular and my arm but site was good.  All OK so far - but the last couple of days I've had a couple of sharp jabs down my left side - kind of electricial/nerve type jabs - and in the early hours of this morning, it woke me - and hasn't eased, I can feel sharp jabs in waves just left of my navel and that goes up to mid-chest - making me feel quite worried.  Any ideas or suggestions?

We get all sorts of random pains as things heal up. Sharp jabs or a zinging feeling can be nerves knitting back together, but they are usually more local than what you describe. When we are healing we are more likely to sleep in odd positions so it could be that.  When in doubt, give your doctor a call.

I finished 29th in London in 2 hours 20 minutes 30 seconds which is my fastest with or without a device so clearly it didn’t slow me down ! I had no problems apart from some slight chaffing on my scar - more Vaseline next time.
