Why is there tenderness at the spot where the pacemaker was put ?

how long until you feel back to normal after having a pacemaker put in? I had a pacemaker put in 7weeks ago after having aortic vavle replacement surgery and one bypass and I still feel the tenderness at the spot where the pacemaker was put in, how long will that last? Also the long incision from the heart surgery is healing nice but it does feel tender too at times especially when I stretch, should I put vitamin E cream on the scar to help with that?

Hi,thanks for query.By about 2 weeks the scar heals and things become normal.At times the skin in that area becomes sensitive and tender to touch,there is no need to worry and you can apply any moisturiser over that area after wound is completely healed.You can continue your routine without worrying.
wishing good health.
