Hockey Goalie Additional Chest Protection?
Hey, new to the club, got my Dual Chamber pacemaker on 3/26. Any of y'all out there a hockey goalie? I feel like I'm healing up very well and quickly so I'm hopeful to get back on the ice in May but debating if my chest protector is enough protection or if I should be adding some additional padding. I wore a heart rate monitor for a couple weeks while playing and took a direct shot to the monitor (through the padding of course) and I felt it but it wasn't terrible. That was on top of the skin and was just the monitor though, the Pacemaker is obviously a little more important. I asked my doctor about playing with it and he said go live your life, he wasn't concerned. I'm thinking if I add another layer of foam or something in the general area though I should be pretty set. Just curious if any one out there has done similar. Thanks!
