I am new to this excellent and very informative forum and would apprciate any help that is available. I am 60 years old and received my pacemaker roughly 8 weeks ago after having an ablation which went south and caused me to have bradycardia. Prior to that I was extremely active on a daily basis, doing a wide variety of sports and exercises such as crossfit. While I'm certain I will have more issues to deal with in the future, presently I would like to know if there are exercises which I should definetly stay away from as they pose a strong risk of dislodging the PM and does the internal pressure generated from the lifting of heavy weights cause any problems.
In additon when exercising strenuously on a treadmill or bike I find it difficult to get my heart rate above 130 BPM and feel nauseous about an hour after I complete the workout. Would any one be able to explain this phenomenon.
Again any help would be much appreciated
You know you're wired when...
You forecast electrical storms better than the weather network.
But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
