I am new here and wanted to know if anyone could help or maybe have some of the same problems...
I had my pacemaker put in 2006 and ever since then nothing but problems!
1.The device moved/shifted from my left shoulder to under my left armpitt. (one of the Dr said that the hematoma shifted it another said no it was just placed wrong)
2.It is unconfortable to move my arm...actually very painful to move it.
3.I feel like the pacemaker is rubbing against my bone when I move my arm.
4.It also hurts and pooks me all the time.
5.I can not sleep at night on my left side cause it feels like it moves and pooks me.
6. I can fell the wires right under my skin...it almost looks like you can see the wires/device bump under my skin
This is just to name a few problem. They said it was NOT implanted in the best place.
What can i do? I really do NOT have faith in the MD practice to have another operation.
Also does anyone know if I can do something Malpractice wise? Please help...
