I have a Pacemaker for A Fib put in on 10/08/19. It is still sore , and turning darker, plus the skin around it feels very rough.
Don't worry, it clears up quickly. Do not reach above your head until the stitches heal.

Hi After Having My ICD Fitted I Gently Washed around the wound with Baby Shampoo sure helps.
I'm on my second pacemaker/defibulator. The site where the drs. placed is always sore. It healed nicely but just uncomfortable. I watch what I wear so the clothing doesn't rub against it. Also I can't lay face down without problems. I have to sleep on my back. I've gotten used to it over the years.
