Subclavian venous stenosis at the level of pacemaker leads
Has anyone experienced this? Just got results (mentioned in subject) of a CT scan w/contrast which was done to determine cause of circulation problems in R arm (same side as PM).... arm swelling, aching, discoloration, pronounced vessels, etc. Next step I'm told is to discuss with an "Interventional Radiologist" who would possibly go in and try to dilate vessel. Really don't want to live like this, and don't know if it will get worse. Being told it is probably from scar tissue, developed over time (1st PM put in in 2011), which reached a threshold. These symptoms were obvious over these past 3 weeks. Has anyone had this happen and subsequently had it fixed? How?

Trade secrets can be smuggled inside your device.
I've seen many posts about people being concerned about exercise after having a device so thought I would let you know that yesterday I raced my first marathon since having my pacemaker fitted in fall 2004.
