I just had a pacemaker implanted on April 21, 2023. So, as yet I don't have a week under my belt.
I was worried because I have a cold and spent the first days of this new adventure coughing, etc. I was worried I would cause the wires to move or something come loose but, I have read many of your posts and am hoping from what I read that wouldn't happen.
They had trouble putting the first lead in and it was pretty painful at times. Sometimes I almost feel like I can feel where they went...??
You know you're wired when...
Like the Energizer Bunny, you keep going.
I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
