First pacemaker coming up!
Hello, I am 23 years old and I have my pacemaker implant soon on Oct 6th. I was born with situs invertus and lived a very normal life, never had problems I just knew that my heart was on the right side and the organs as well. I live in Canada now and 5 years ago found out I have bradycardia (I was born with bradycardia apparently but never felt it or knew) so now Im told that Im going to have a pacemaker implant. I want to do it under the pectoral muscle because I dont want to see it tbh and I heard it hurts a lot like that. Is that true? How painful is it from 1-10 and how long it lasts? Is the recovery very hard? Also Im skinny and will it still show even under the muscle?
