Two weeks after

Phrenic nerve stimulation, a rare complication of pacemaker:... : Medicine (lww.com)

had just about exact complications, and tech provided about exact voltage ajust to cure the problem.......finally feels great, no more body slams (so far!). Removed bandage and a couple of stitches, but never got any instruction about keeping the site clean! :(. Not sre to do normal shower/dry, or?...... Any advice from experience would be greatly appreciated.

Two weeks

A shower at two weeks shouldn't be a problem if your wound is completely closed. Just to be safe, don't let the spray hit it directly and pat dry (don't rub). Be careful not to raise that arm.

You know you're wired when...

You have rhythm.

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.
