Need to have EKG and pace maker site review
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! First of all, it is sad to know what you had gone through. Based on the history you have shared, and keeping in mind the history of A fib and slow heart rates, it is preferable to get a fresh EKG and pulse examination to know the speed and synchrony of the heart beats and also get a review regarding adequate functioning of pace maker.
Local tenderness or shooting pains also need evaluation of the pace makers site insertion to rule out any pus or infection at the site. Meanwhile keep on using the drugs that you have mentioned until then. If pain increases in intensity then consider a medical facility referal at the earliest other wise get a routine cardiologist review. Keep a strict follow up from time to time with your primary. Wishing you a speedy recovery. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.
