Moms with pacemakers? Looking for advice for comfort when managing my LO
My Medtronic CRT-D is not submuscular unfortunately and I am quite petite framed, I have been struggling with holding my son during feedings or just carrying him as I get pains in my shoulder, and he keeps accidentally faceplanting onto my device (poor little guy). I also have a port under my skin on the opposite shoulder which he has accidentally bonked against during crying bouts. I have resorted to wearing multiple layers and sweatshirts to help cushion him if he does faceplant on me, but it's not a great solution nor sustainable once summer hits. Nor does it help with my shoulder pain. Have any mother's been through this? Any creative ideas would be appreciated. I was thinking of sewing some sort of cushion, even though it sounds ridiculous. Edited to add that I am hoping to get a revision for the pocket when the do a lead revision but this could be a bit of a wait, crossing my fingers that I can get it done this year.
You know you're wired when...
You have an excuse for gaining an extra ounce or two.
I'm a runner, mountain climber, kayaker, snow skier, bicycler and scuba diver. The only activity among those that I'm not yet cleared to do is scuba diving, and when I am cleared, I'll be limited to diving to 50 feet.
