PM Moved to armpit area

Roger A,  I've had my p/m since August 2019 and about March of this year I had the same sensation of movement as you.  The device had moved to near the underarm area.  My cardiologist said it wasn't uncommon and advised leaving it there and to just be advised that if it starts flipping to seek medical attention sooner rather than later.  I have had no further issues and am keeping fingers crossed it behaves.  Best of luck to you!  benedeni

It is just over 10 years since a dual lead device was implanted for complete heart block. It has worked perfectly and I have traveled well near two million miles internationally since then.
