Exercise with Pacemaker
I have Dual chamber pacemaker in upper left Chest portion.
I want to keep myself healthy and active, hence i decided to go for Strength and bit of cardio workouts. Can you help me with my below questions ?
1: Can we lift normal weights like dumbells, Weight bars and do push-ups with Pacemaker considering it should not harm the leads ?
2: What is the limit for weights ?
3: I get ectopic beats 10-15 times in a day and more when i do some workouts like jogging, umping jacks, cycling. Is it normal to have them ?
4: Were you able to cure your ectopic beats (PVC) ?
5: What workout routines you follow to keep yourself healthy considering pacemaker in place?
From last 1 year, i have been living in fear due to sudden PVCs and couple of flutters everyday even though there is a pacemaker in place. I want to get into normal way as i was before 1 year back without any medicines and PVCs
I appreciate your help, thanks in advance.
You know you're wired when...
You have an excuse for being a couch potato.
I am just grateful to God that I lived long enough to have my ICD put in. So many people are not as lucky as us; even though we sometimes don't feel lucky.
