Chafing / soreness around incision scar tissue
It's been a few months now since I received my (first) pacemaker and overall, all is well. I'm still feeling it when it kicks in, and when it runs a self test, but I'm used to the feeling by now. The scar has healed well, no signs of swelling, redness, or anything like that.
I do however feel soreness around the scar tissue, especially if it's warm and I'm wearing clothes that rub against the area. Do you all have any tricks for reducing this? Creams, patches to put on under the clothes or anything like that?
You know you're wired when...
You play MP3 files on your pacer.
I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
