There is a glitch with the site that is preventing comments and private messages. I've contacted the site owner. No one has been banned from posting!
Something's up with the website and can't comment directly on the post.
If they are putting it back where it was, pain should be minimal, similar to when you had it moved before.
Swelling and lymph node sounds like infection?
Hey guys, my 3rd implant was put in sep 2016 and of course it hurt after which I was familiar with but it kept hurting and then around 11 months ago it began to swell and my armpit lymph node began to swell as well so finally the cardiologist confirmed it has moved, I am scheduled Tues 6:30 am to have him put it back in place but I have never had one move so idk what the procedure will consist of and how much pain it will be, I have had one inserted upside down and fixed before imagine...
Its been a great support reading other peoples experiences post PM. I am 53 years old and had a PM fitted 16th Nov 17. I had a loop recorder fitted in March 17 after experiencing palpitations and fatigue during exercise ( I was a runner) all was good until I woke early one morning with intense headache and vomited. I felt sick all day and literally could not get out of bed, I just slept for 24 hours. The next day I was able to get up but I was very confused and I felt like my b...
Careful Don, I have it on good authority you aren't supposed to spread cheer here.
Ian, 2 things
1st the dead can post here, as long as it's not contagious.
2nd my Cardio said never go to the hospital, they'll kill you. Last time I was thrre they gave it their best shot
Grateful Heart: while we are all being...
...cheeky - What the ^%$#@# is that mangy looking thing in your picture?
Looks like a cross between a squirrel & a rabbit sitting i the middle of your front lawn!
I got a Whoops too when I tried to respond to you, but I was able to leave Ian a comment.
Some fascinating data has come out of Harvard Medical School and has been published in the Journal of the American Heart Association :-
They have found that heart attack patients are more likely to survive when senior cardiologists are away at conferences and are NOT in the hospital . When the senior doctors aren't there the survival rate at their hospitals actually improves !
It is suggested that specialists, when they are there, are more likely to do gung-ho...
Just got another Whoops! I thought it was fixed.
Hi all! New here! Nice to find you!! Have any of your had any type of Tinnitus after surgery? I had 2nd pacer installed in Aug last year. Apparently a lead is holding open my tricuspid valve... And I now here blood rushing & pulsing in my ears when lying down at night. Weird, Yes or No?
I'm sure Gotrhythm and MartyP know they didn't do anything wrong. It was all in jest while the site was/ is semi-down. (Sigh)
It's getting harder and harder to joke around these days on this site. Laughter is good medicine!!
BTW Ian....I've heard that too!
Sure I get a lifetime achievement award and nobody informs me.
Blake why didn't you tell me I was banished from the site, I'd have worn my tux and gotten a date for the ceremony. Always last to know...or is Robin mistaken as usual?
I've heard that anyone suffering a fatal cardiac arrest is not allowed to post on here
I thought we were kidding. A big Whoops!
This site has been shut down when the members become unkind as a group effort. Only once, in the several years I have been on this site (since 2011) has there been a shutdown. Several member's were flaming eachother. Pacemaker Club was off line until things became civil.
I only know of one person who was banned for a period of time. That fellow was allowed back as long as he related to people in a reasonable manner.
Donr, AlmaAnnie and a few other long...
Marty, I refer you to the post just below yours.
It's got to be a problem with the website - I also got a "Whoops"
Gotrhythm, it may not be a problem per se. Blake periodically blocks certain members who annoy him from participating in discussions. If everybody else can reply but you, look around you're one of the special cases...
Looks like the trouble commenting isn't fixed. I keep getting the "Whoops" message.
i am new to the PM world 3 weeks now post implant. I wear a Garmin forerunner 235 and my understanding is that my PM is set at Hr 60 ( do I shouldn’t drop below) . Subsequent to my PM implant I check my average Hr resting on my Garmin and it is still reading low resting rates. Today early morning my resting low was Hr 32. I am not sure whether there is now inaccuracy with my Garmin but it works through light monitors on my wrist .... so has anyone else had this? I only ha...
