Fist PM yesterday, can't sleep, sssooo tired.
I had my first pacemaker fitted yesterday, the surgery itself was OK ish, I have allergies to anti bionics and painkillers, I was given an antidote before being given two iv antibiotics pre surgery.
The local anaesthetic initially didn't work and I felt the cut until the nurse shouted to stop. They gave me a sedative which didn't seem to work at all but due to my allergies I could not have painkillers.
The vein they wanted to use for the two wires they couldn't find despite using a dye, so had to use one higher up which was bigger. 2 1/2 hrs later it was done.
Out-of theatre at 1415hrs, hubby collected me at 1645, home for 1800. Very very tired but can't sleep a wink. Back aches when laying on back, wound and shoulder uncomfortable when laying on left or right side.
I don't generally bruise and there is no visible bruising, but a little swelling.
What can you all suggest to help bring the bruising out to make it more comfortable please?
You know you're wired when...
You have a dymo-powered bike.
