this is my third pacemaker in almost 30 years. I am 10 day post implant for my new device. I still have swelling and pain that wakes me up at night. It also is difficult to turn my head, it feels like the skin is pulling. I know that the doctors had to go through a lot of scar tissue and scaring and that will make healing difficult and longer than before. But this is waking me up at night, so I'm not sleeping well. I think I need to give it more time and just relax and let it heal, but I think I'm more impatient becasue I'm not sleeping. My doctor said as long as my pacemaker is working fine, I just need to relax. How long do i need to "relax"?
You know you're wired when...
Your pacemaker interferes with your electronic scale.
I am 100% pacemaker dependant and have been all my life. I try not to think about how a little metal box keeps me alive - it would drive me crazy. So I lead a very active life.
