Hi my name is greg. Just had my icd put in Jan. 13th I went back to work as a Dealer in las vegas on the 30th. Having some issues that are bothersome. I would like some feedback.
It feels like my heart sometimes feels like it's cramping up. It seems to be only for seconds but it scares me. Also, it feels like I can feel the wires tugging on my heart if I move a certain way. This also passes but it bothers me I keep thinking I'll pull the leads out. I also have had times when I get dizzy.
Does anyone else have these problems? If so what did you do?

I just returned from my appointment with my cardiologist. The date has been set for my replacement. Pacemaker #4 will become part of me on Monday, February 29. Did anyone else ever receive a pacer on February 29? I wonder if that date will present any problems with future interrogations and pacemaker checks. Any thoughts?

This Friday will be 1 month since surgery for myself. Lately my shoulder area where my pacemaker was inserted has been very tender, sore & I've had pain. The pain would best be described as being punched really hard in the arm & feeling a bruise set in. Is this normal recovery pain? I also had the flu during recovery & that really wore me down & caused lots of chest pain from vomiting. I'm just unsure if maybe I pulled something in that whole process.

I'll be assisting a surgical procedure in the next few weeks. Will the electrocautery affect my pacemaker if I am the surgeon's assistant?
Couldn't find topics about this so I had to ask.
Plus, should I avoid doing chest compressions for the meantime and opt for ambubagging? Im about 16 weeks out. I'm scared I might damage my leads if I do chest compressions.

It has been nearly 3 months since I had my pm installed. I noticed when I or someone brushes up against my pacemaker I get this sudden slight discomfort in my heart area. It is hard to describe this feeling and only last a few seconds. I also notice this when ever I sleep on the side of my pacemaker. If someone knows what this might be I would greatly appreciate it.

I have a very large pacemaker (medtronic) it is almost 2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. (why is mine so much larger than my 2 friends, they had their surgery a few months prior to mine with the same symptom?
It has bee almost 2 months and when I move certain ways it protrudes about an inch and pushes against my skin like it is going to come through, and when it does this it hurts........in fact it has a burning hurting sinsation all the time.
I also am still short of breath and tired most of the time.
Rebecca (thanks for any information you can give on my issues.)

I had an atrial pacemaker implanted in 2000 after an ablation of the sinus node and another in 2009. I'm due another box change and my electro physiologist has said that I will have an upgrade to a dual chamber as I now have left bundle branch block. Has anyone upgraded from a single to dual pacemaker?

No pvc's/pacs excpt when I first lie down. After half a minute or so they are gone. If I have to get up in the middle of the night and lie back down, same thing. Any suggestions or anyone else have this happen?

I'm heading to Europe with the family this summer, my first trip abroad since I had a pacemaker put in 16 months ago. I've traveled a bit domestically recently, so I know the pat downs I'll be getting going through the airport, but I'm curious if anyone has been to Paris since the attacks at the end of the year. I know they are increasing security, I'm hoping that not every museum has a metal detector, but I'm wondering if any one has any hands on experience lately?
