Pacemaker Got Hit...
Hello, I'm a 34 yo male and have had a dual chamber Medtronic pacemaker for about 3 months now, working beautifully. A couple days ago however, it took a direct hit from my 9 year old son's flying elbow during some horseplay :) which shoved it inward and pulled the skin over it. It still seems to be working just fine, but the site is extremely tender and there's this internal itch throughout the entire area that is driving me insane. Seems like a silly thing to call my electrophysiologist about, but what do you guys think?

My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
