Thumping from diaphragm on right side of body
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what you did to relieve it?
I have had my Pacemaker since May, 2019. The past 6 months I have experienced 'thumping' from
my right side from diaphragm. Saw my cardiologist and he said that a lead was placed to close
to the diaphragm area and that causes that 'thumping' when pace maker is correcting itself. It is
not a life or death matter but just very annoying, so much that I can not sleep on my left side
which seems to bring it on. Has anyone else experienced this? Cardiologist says he can open
up my incision and replace that particular lead and I really don't want to go through that
healing again since I bled so much due to blood thinners. Thank you for your responses.

Bad hair days can be blamed on your device shorting out.
I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
