Bruising / shortness of breath


Very new to all of this just had surgery on the 21st.  Biotronik put in and I am type 2 diabetic.  I have really bad bruising on underside of left arm and left side is this normal?  I also get short of breath when I go from room to room.  Am I expecting to much to soon?  I am 85.

Had my surgery 7/8. Severe bruising arm,back and chest. Still some left. Also being short of breath . I'm  89 so age could be a factor. It will eventually get a little better.

I had my CRT pacemaker implanted in May. I had a huge navy bruise on my left side and some bruising above. It gradually disappeared. I am 64. I would ask about your shortness of breath.

Thank you

Thank you I feel better about the bruising will check with Dr about breathing,

In fact after the final "tweaks" of my pacemaker programming at the one year check up it is working so well that I forget I have it.
