chest and throat pain
i got my pacemaker about 3 weeks ago and soon after the surgery i started getting pain in my chest and my throat when i would breathe in. it went away, but it has started again, mainly when i go from a sitting to laying position or laying to sitting. last night i ran up the stairs in my house to answer the phone and when i got to the top of the stairs my throat was hurting really bad for about a minute when i would breathe in. i went to the dr. about it about a week after i had my PM put in and he seemed to think it was just sore from the surgery, but i feel like if that's the case, it still shouldn't be hurting 3 weeks later. i've never had surgery before this so i don't know how long recovery takes. has anyone had any pain like this after their PM was put in? thanks!
