"pacemaker agony"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

Anything else?

I attended pacemaker clinic on 8 may 2013 told them I was in so much pain due to pacemaker coming out of pocket, was told they will write to my gp over tablets to take due to pain, all they wrote was, was seen in clinic next appointment in 3 months time. The pain has got a lot worse no one seems to want to help. I suffer from anxiety depression and that's getting worse due to not getting help for my pain. Have phoned cardiology a few times a week and left voice mails and not had a call back. Just feel like ripping the device out as what's the point in being in this much pain and not getting the help that is needed.
