i might have moved my pacemaker -- and now it hurts
I was pretty close to being dead -- my heart was stopping, once I woke up about a foot above the floor, I had convulsed. My heart had stopped, my body convulsed in an attempt to restart it, and as i said, I was a foot or so above the floor, headed down fast!, when I woke up.
All of this is ancient history since I've had my Boston Scientific pacemaker installed -- it saved my life.
Not one event of this kind and my health generally has been much better.
But a few days ago I think I injured the area where my pacemaker is installed. Several sharp pin-pricks, lot's of brusing, moving is painful in that area.
All bad news.
Now my question:
What can be done?
Is second-time surgery a good option?
I need answers.

You get your device tuned-up for hot dates.
I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
