Two weeks after

Phrenic nerve stimulation, a rare complication of pacemaker:... : Medicine (lww.com)

had just about exact complications, and tech provided about exact voltage ajust to cure the problem.......finally feels great, no more body slams (so far!). Removed bandage and a couple of stitches, but never got any instruction about keeping the site clean! :(. Not sre to do normal shower/dry, or?...... Any advice from experience would be greatly appreciated.

A shower at two weeks shouldn't be a problem if your wound is completely closed. Just to be safe, don't let the spray hit it directly and pat dry (don't rub). Be careful not to raise that arm.

You know you're wired when...

You can feel your fingers and toes again.

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
