I am 44 and i got a dual chamber pacemaker in 2015. I managed to displace a lead and while repositioning it my Doc screwed up big time. After 2 surgeries in 15 days I still had a displaced lead.I was suggested to have a 3rd surgery . After discussions with a few docs over the next 2 months, I decided not to go for a 3rd surgery.
Anyways, I haven't required too much pacing and the pacemaker has been working fine. But I keep getting this pain all around my heart. It's sometimes a pinching pain and sometimes it's like something is pressing. It lasts for a second and goes away. Sometimes I keep getting if for 4-5 continuous days and sometimes it disappears for weeks. I have gotten kind of used to living with it . I have had all kind of tests over the years and my doc says that every thing is fine with the pacemaker are the displaced wire. He says it could be a muscular pain .
For the first time has now persisted for about 10 days and the intensity has also increased . Tests again show everything normal. I really don't know what to do and who to consult. I feel it's related to the pacemaker. Has anyone had such an experience? Could it be a muscular problem? I am going crazy without answers for 5 years.
You know you're wired when...
A thirty-day guarantee is not good enough.
I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
