Still sore after 18 months
Hi Im a newbie from England. I had a st Jude fitted 18 months ago, I suffer from fibromyalgia and although I told the surgeon that, he still insisted I didn’t need a general anaesthetic so it was done by local anaesthetic and I felt some of the surgery, The pacer and area around it is still sore after 18 months, and I don’t think they pushed it in far enough as the surgeon realised I was in pain during the procedure, but on repeated appointments when I’ve complained about the soreness and the way it flops when I turn over in bed, they insist it’s ok and blame the discomfort I feel from it on the fibromyalgia. anyone had the same problem?
You know you're wired when...
Your pacemaker interferes with your electronic scale.
The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
