Pain post-Pacemaker and Ibuprofen
Well, here I am back again with another question. It has been less than three weeks following my Medtronic pacemaker implantation, and I get these fleeting periodic pains in and around my heart. They are responsive to Ibuprofen; however, I don't want to be on this drug for the rest of my life. Can I expect the pain eventually to go away, or will I be stuck with it?
Also, there has been another consequence. I always had hypertension, but now that the pacemaker is here, my pulse is not only normal, but so is my blood pressure (and without meds!).
Has anyone experienced either or both these things?
