POST OP QUESTION
Had my PM put in on Friday. It was breeze. There was never any real pain. Just soreness at the incision site. Don't notice anything different with my heart, other than a steady 60BPM, which is dramatically different from the 30-40BPM I've had for the past 40 years. I do notice a tiny bit of numbness in my left hand post op. I'm thinking that maybe the site swelling is impinging on the brachial plexus and causing that sensation? I don't think it's coincidence. Also not sure about the bedside monitor. They throw so much information at you, it's hard to remember everything. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

To tell you the truth I never even give it a second thought. While growing up it never stopped me from doing anything and to this day my girlfriend or my kids need to remind me that I have one!
