Trying to recover
I 47 years old. I've had a pacemaker since I was 18. I'm on my fourth one, I have two leads. 11 days ago I had one of the leads replaced and I'm still trying to recover from that. The old lead apparently is not sensing the new lead very well and I have have all sorts of flutters and worse. Yesterday I could hardly walk my son to his classroom, it's like the pacer would not speed up. Then my left arm is swollen and purple. They checked for a blood clot but found nothing. Since the surgery I have had horrible headaches everyday, they start in the afternoon and by evening I just want to scream! Ibuprofren is not helping. Has anyone experienced any of these problems?
