Is the area red and warm to the touch? You could have developed an infection if your body is trying to reject the pacemaker. Shortly after I had my pacemaker implanted I developed an infection. My doctor said it can be very dangerous because the infection can travel down the wires/leads to you heart. Then you really have problems. As kaismama said, if it is pain and not just tenderness, you should call your doctor immediately.

I had a pacemaker and a stent installed one year ago. At that time I was told that I must take Plav?
