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...

You have the perfect reason to show off your chest.

Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
