Pain after 3rd pacemaker replacement
I am a gal who is 78 yrs. old and on July 28th I had my 2nd pacemaker replaced with a Medtronic MRI Surescan pacemaker. After my 1st & 2nd pacemaker surgeries, I had minor incision pain for only a few days. This third surgery has been very different. I have extreme pain that feels like something is tugging on the incision. The first two pacemakers used the same vertical incision, but this third one is horizontal and located adjacent to the previous incisions. Could this pain be caused by scar tissue or should I be looking for another cause? Any suggestions? Thank you.
