It is ten weeks from my pacemaker insertion and I am still experiencing pain over the pacemaker site and also over the old leads on the opposite side. Just started driving again and returned to work three weeks ago. Only working part time at present but my boss is pressurising me to return to full time work immediately. Would like to know how other people coped with their pacemakers and working. I sit at a computer and it's full on pounding the keyboards. Having had many different heart problems all my life I have coped with them all but now feel I am being a bit of a wuss over this. Not my usual style. Also a question for the ladies with pacemakers - having leads on both sides makes it so difficult to wear a shoulder bag, what do you do. Any men with man bags feel free to answer!
Thanks, moan over.
