Well I finally got back on here after a few days of trying. I had to reregister. So for those who know me my old member name was OIMAPRINCESS247 so i just added another 7. Well Things are going well. I go for my 2 week check up. I am a little nervous. I have it in my head that I did something wrong and i am going to have to go back for more surgery. Everyone keeps telling me things are going to be ok so I am hoping. Things are getting harder because the pain has gone away and I am wanting to use my left arm. Well I will let everyone know how things are going after the doctors tomorrow. HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!!!!

You have to go back for a check up. Lucky you, they never told me to come back for two week check up. How is your recovery holding up. I am still kinda feeling wiped out.

funny me too

Glad to hear you're doing well and the pain has gone. I'm just over 3 weeks implanted myself and still feeling a bit paranoid that I'm gonna accidently damage it somehow. If you feel like that too, then we must be 'normal' LOL!!!

Best of luck with your 2 week check-up.

Waking up during night

This can have a very real cause. Most pacer are set to self test and calibrate once a day. Since the test involves a short burst of faster heart beats sometimes followed by a skipped beat or two they often set the test time to the middle of the night. At first it can wake you up or affect dream patterns. By the time you actually wake up it it over and you have no idea what happened. Just knowing this can help to not be concerned. I rarely notice it anymore.
