Painful nipple

Had my Defribilator in last August. About 3 months after that, I noticed pain around my nipple. I do not ordinary feel any pain unless someone or something touches it or when I lie on it. It is most on the nipple. 

Has anyone noticed such? Sometimes I wonder if it is due to the implant because the pain is about 2 inches away from the nipple.

Suggestions or experience sharing please.

Nipple pain

This is certainly something to have checked out by your doctors. Since it's been three months since your implant, I wouldn't expect it to be related but anything can happen.

After I had my bypass surgery, my left nipple was excruciatingly sensitive. After four years, I still have pain on that side (can't blame it on the pacemaker). My suspicion is that they did some nerve damage during the sternotomy and it never entirely healed. My PM wound was really sensitive to the touch for about eight months, too. I still feel a raw abrasive feeling where the leads loop around.

Bottom line: get it checked out. It's probably not serious but you won't know that unless you have it looked at.

I wouldn't be alive if it wasn't for pacemakers. I've had mine for 35+ years. I was fainting all of the time and had flat-lined also. I feel very blessed to live in this time of technology.
