Small frames and sub muscular CRT-D
Ok so over 2 weeks abdominal explant and the shoulder sub muscular placement of my icd. All the swelling is gone and it's healed up wonderfully. Problem is the dang thing hurts anytime I move my arm/shoulder, try to lay on that side etc. Docs say it's my small frame and that I am just going to be uncomfortable until it comes out. Using ice packs and Tylenol but it seems to be getting worse not better, for example muscle cramping around the shoulder joint. Anyone with small frames have suggestions for me other than what my doctors say which is "just use the other side". Which of course has my milrinone line placed subclavian. Stretches? Or maybe some words of encouragement that my body will get used to it and stop hurting?
