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?

My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
