Pacemaker for Athletes
I am a 54 year old endurance cyclist, cycle guide and coach, who, 6 weeks ago, had a pacemaker implanted for 3rd degree heart block.
I have developed pain around the pacemaker in the chest, swelling in the left arm and purple bruising along the blood vessels around my left shoulder. I feared an infection or thrombosis and was checked in the local hospital and given the all clear to go home. However the pain, swelling and purple bruising still remain and it's uncomfortable at rest and to lift my left arm.
I was wondering how I should proceed now the hospital has already checked it and found no infection or blockage.
Thanks in anticipation.
