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
