Pain around pacemaker site
I am getting very frustrated with this situation. I have had my pacemaker for over 2 years and I still have the same cramping ache at the site that I experienced after the implant. No one takes me seriously. I have been trying to rattle the cardiology office cage for a week and 1/2 now. Several weeks ago it got worse; woke me up at night and in the morning it hurt so bad that twice I couldn’t stand straight. It seems to harder to stand up when I get up and start moving. I can’t get past the phone nurse. She left a voice mail for me ‘ that it couldn’t possibly be the device because I’ve had it so long. That it must be something else.’ Dr. told me they could re position it but didn’t like to for fear of infection. I am posting because after this long of time, although I’ve been told nothing can be done about it, I don’t want this in my life anymore. Has this happened to anyone else?
