I'm back after surgery!!!
Hi all, I'm the 24-year old that had my PM implant surgery was last Friday morning June 8th and I am feeling great compared to before! I am sore of course kinda like some pulled muscles is what it feels like in my chest and shoulder on the left side. I guess that is normal. Having trouble laying down in bed too at night. I prop up with about 5 pillows under me and then an extra pillow under my left arm to prop it up. I have also been having trouble with my left breast.... sorry to be so blunt... but the thing is so darn heavy that I am constantly either wearing a strapless bra or holding it up myself, I can't bear to just let it hang because the weight hurts like crazy!! Those are probably my only complaints, but overall I feel like a million bucks and I have had compliments on how I actually have color in my face again (I say yeah that's what happens when you actually have a pulse again and oxygen can get to your brain!!!). I stayed in the hospital Friday night and they read my PM Saturday morning and my heart tried to drop 22 times during the night!!!!!! The pacemaker of course kicks in and I am sleeping so much better than before!!! I can feel the device working several times a day, and NO WONDER I needed this thing. It doesn't hurt or bother me when it "goes off", it's just cool that I can feel it working. I had a couple of bad moments in the hospital but I will save for a later post. I am just glad to be back and thanks to everyone for the support before I went under!!! Sincerely, Constance
