So I apologize for not updating after my last post!! Unfortunately, a couple days after that post I was hit by a car. I have been spending the last six months recovering from that and I am finally back up on my feet again. I damaged my rotator cuff and dislodged my pacer. I ended up healing he rotator cuff with three months of physical therapy, it didn't completely cure my shoulder, but it got me back to moving it at least!! Below is a pic of me with my amazing accessory for a while, my sling :)
My doctor didn't want to do surgery on my pacer before my shoulder was fully healed and I was deemed to not need surgery on my shoulder. It was not a pleasant time, my pacer was actually just jumping around in my chest and it is was fairly painful, I had to wear sports bras all the time just to keep my pacer in place so it wouldn't hurt as much. Below is a x-Ray of my pacer all topsy turvey!!
