This is my second post. Thanks to those who commented on my 1st post.
again I am only 7 weeks into my dual lead St Jude PM. I have read a lot on the Pacemaker.com forums and it seems there was a post about some PM’s being more sensitive than others to begin with. I’ve read that the phone and I-pad are ok if they’re at least 6 inches away from the PM...and I try to remember that but sometimes I’ll notice I’m holding too close and back it off. Usually I’m on the speaker to make sure it’s around 3 ft away. I haven’t had my first check in with the people monitoring...I guess that comes at 90 days, but at least 3 times I”ve noticed a funny feeling in my chest and my stomach gets quezie along with my ears sort of stopping up when I’ve been on the phone. I am on my i-pad a good bit too and wonder if it could be a problem as well.
If anybody has had a similar experience or knowledge on this subject I would appreciate a heads up.
