Effect of weight loss
I read somewhere that if one loses too much weight, the PM can fall out of its "pocket." Is this true? I've lost 30 pounds, and am planning to lose more (hoping). I could stand to lose 30-50 more pounds (and I'll still be heavy after that, but I don't want to go too low). I've been making my docs happy, but they didn't mention this potential problem!
Just to elaborate: losing a lot of weight takes hard work, focus, and determination--something I couldn't do when I was sick and only able to focus on surviving.
I got my PM implant October 2018, and have felt soooo much better ever since. It took me a few months after implantation to "remember how not to be sick" since for 4 years prior about all I could do was work and rest, while they tried to cure my AFIB with drugs, cardioversions, and albations. After I got my head out of my, ahem! posterior and realized I wasn't sick any more, I decided to focus on improving my overall health.
And, boy, was the exercise hard! After years of inactivity even 5 minutes of exercise was difficult. I've been at it now for about 4 months, and am so much better now - dancing, aqua jogging, etc. But i don't want my PM to dislodge.
My one-year check up with the EP and the device tech is in October, and I will ask them, but wanted to hear from y'all. VW
