In theory they are stitched into place and don't move. In reality, they can move. Some doctors don't stitch, some stitch but it comes loose, some pacers are just gonna wander. If it's flipping over, have it looked at. If it's just shifting around, that happens to a lot of us. If it's uncomfortable once it's fully healed (6-12 months), they can go in and reposition it. My newest one (#5) moves quite a lot and is annoying. I considered having it fixed but decided it's annoying, not painful, so I will live with it. 

You know you're wired when...

Bad hair days can be blamed on your device shorting out.

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.
