After effects of transcutaneous pacing
Hello all, almost nine months on from the installation of my flux capacitor and the mental road has been rocky of late. Working through the feelings and emotions with my psyche at the moment and looking to move forward. Recently saw my cardiologist and he has assured me everything is working as it should and 'normal' life shouldn't be a goal, rather a given. Easier said than done it seems.
Now, my 'recovery' question is regarding 'transcutaneous/external pacing' which I experienced after my first SCA in January. I do remember it hurt like hell and was constant for an amount of time. That amount of time, I'm unclear of, as I was in survival mode and had no point of reference. Since then I have experienced brief, but daily minor discomfort in my chest which I've begun to ignore as it resolves quickly but I suspect a shift in my digestive system has occured. The discomfort is random but I have noticed it can come after eating or drinking, not always however. Have also noticed it after physical activity, such as performing my daily work duties or after a session on the drums. I've tried to look up after effects of external pacing but most literature seems to suggest nothing long term. I wonder if anyone has had a similar experience, if indeed anyone has been externally paced. All I remember, it wasn't pleasant, but obviously it did it's job well for me to be typing this. Just curious?
