bulging pacemaker with itchng and periodic pain
Mom who is 89 had pacemaker surgery approximately 18 months ago. It has always bulged at the site and now she gets occasional pains and itching. He cardiologist tells us not to worry. But her friends tell her this is not normal. Does any one else have these symptoms with a pacemaker?

There could be pocket infection and/or inflammation of the heart tissues involved, and that can develop into a serious heart problem such as inflammation of the pericardium (heart muscle surrounding the heart), etc.  Has your mother gotten a second opinion?  Your mother's friends are correct as it is an abnormal condition involving a pacemaker.

Thanks for your question and I hope your mother the best.  Take care and if you have any followup questions you are welcome to ask.
