Recovery - sub pec
I got to ring in the new year and my 27th birthday with my new chicken nugget (what I call my pacemaker- not sure why), as I just had my first PM implanted sub pec on 12/17. My incision looks absolutely beautiful (like there will be almost no scar!), and I’m not as swollen as I was the first two weeks out. As I’m in my third week, I’ve returned to work (I am a teacher), and the last two days have been a bit rough. I was just wondering how recovery has gone for the rest of y’all who have had their PM put in sub pec. It feels like towards the end of the day my chest, neck, shoulder, arm, and left side of my back are constantly aching, and at times like my arm is almost weighing down my chest. I am assuming a lot of that is from being too cautious with arm movement...I am working on that! There are also times where my chest just aches, as I know the muscle is still healing. How long does that “pain” last? I also have little zaps or jabs of pain here and there...there have been some weird feelings. Anyways, just checking in to see what recovery was like with others who have had it placed sub pec!
