hi many thanks to all of you who replyed to my concerns on general anaesthetic. im happy to say that the op went well and i had no problems with the pacemaker during or after the anaesthetic.
im due to have acupuncture in two weeks at my local doctors for neck pain and wondered if any of you have had any acupuncture and if so how did you get on.
merry christmas and a healthy new year to all of you.

Good everything went well.

I get acupuncture for arthritis in my hip - just to help to control the pain a little. I can't say "yes" it's much better, but I can't say either that it is not. It has not helped with the stiffness. Overall though, I am more happy.That's what my Acupuncturist says, if nothing else, people should get more calm and more happy after the treatment. The actual treatment getting the needles inserted does not hurt at all and you get to lay and meditate for 20 - 30 minutes under a heat lamp listening to calming music - how nice is that. No problems with my pm.
Good luck and I am interested in how it works for you.

Thanks for update

Thanks for letting us know everything went well.

Like Donna, I'm interesting how the acupuncture in the neck works for you. I have wondered if would work for my neck stiffness and pain.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well,
