  • ICD post op pains

    Sooooooooooo...... a week ago I had to get a lead revision due to some continuity issues with my ICD that was implanted a year and a half ago. On the fifth day after my surgery I started developing a pain that feels like someone is taking their finger from the inside of my heart and poking it to the outside. It lasts about 2 or 3 seconds, not super painful (about a 4 or 5) but enough for me to take notice right now. So in the last 2 days it's happened 7 to 10 times each day...... after my original surgery a year and a half ago I remember having similar pains that lasted a few months after my icd was implanted.... my question is have other people in our glorious club experienced these similar pains and what do you suppose would cause this ?
