Its just about 3 months since my dual chamber pacemaker was placed. My first in office appointment is in a few weeks.
My pacemaker never seemed to sit snugly in a pocket. One edge always sticks up. At one point it would flip 90-180 degrees. (Quite annoying. Now it only flips about 90 degrees and fatty tissue seems to be growing over it and adhering to it. Is this normal?
They really need to issue a pacemaker handbook!

Your electric tooth brush interferes with your device.
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.
