pain after 6 years

i got my icd implanted in may 2017. for the last 2 weeks i've had tenderness around the device near the bottom where it's near my breast tissue. i haven't hit it or done anything out of the ordinary with it. never had this issue before. my ep retired a few years ago and the new one has months until next available appt. the skin is not red or hot. but i am still concerned. i am not sure if i should be or what i should do.

If you can't get in with your ep, call your GP. They can diagnose infection. When was your last mammo? You might want to check with the OB/GYN if it's breast related.

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
