Moving pacemaker

I had a pacemaker implanted May 24 th this year 2007 , since the first week It turns up when I lay on my right side.I have to push it back in place. The doctor said it would probably be O.K. It stays some what sore. has anyone had this problem?

abot this subject so if you do a few searches I am sure you will find answers. I got my pm in jan07 and the pain still has not gone away. My skin is thin and it is possible that the site simply cant handle the unit. I may need to have it relocated. As for the pocket,that is normal. When they implant the PM the surgeon makes a "pocket" to hold the PM. After some time the tissue will heal up and hopefully the pm wil stay in the pocket your body heals around to make.
