Newly placed device
I received a pacemaker four weeks ago tomorrow. I am finding things more difficult than I thought; I thought everything would be perfect and "back to normal" (my underlying condition leading to now is Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy, and I've had a myectomy). I am experiencing shortness of breath, sensitivity in the incision area still, and pounding heartbeats. I have an appointment a week early tomorrow with the pacemaker clinic so they can figure out what's going on. Anyone else have issues post surgery?
Have you all gotten used to having this thing?
Thanks in advance.
