New Pacemaker Complications
Hi Everyone, My name is John a 54 year old male and I am new to group. I received my pacemaker implant 3 weeks ago.
I am having 2 issues already;
1- Infection with discharge from implant site started heavy as mix of blood and fluids. Now it is slowed but showing green infection looking discharge which I am on antibiotics for since 5 days ago.
2- Pain under my left pectoral muscle which is no where near implant as that is on same side but just under collarbone.
As this group seems to be the best resource because we all have this new addition to our bodies.
I am going to Dr again on Tuesday, but wanted to get thoughts if this is normal.
* When I saw the doc last week he mentioned pretty quick they may have to extract, but put me on antibiotics. Is he hoping it will go away or just keeping under control?
I apologize for lengthy questions, but I am scared and any advice would be very much appreciated.
