Swollen area above pacemaker
Hi, I am 34 years old and had my 1st pacemaker replacement operation in January. Since then everything has been going pretty much ok except for some swelling around the incision area around April that did not last for over a week. For the last 2,5 weeks the incision area of the pacemaker has been painful and swollen. As of today the area is in fact very swollen but it is not painful. My doctor did a blood test last week and noted that as my CRP levels were bellow 1, there was no sign of an infection. He mentioned that it might just be an accumulation of fluid but he could not verbalise the reasons for that happening 9 months after the operation. Has anyone had a simillar experience or know anything about this?
