Police officer UK
I am a police officer and collapsed at work last month, found to be in third degree heart block - age 31 with my heart going at 21! I was given an emergency pacemaker two days later. I have already done several years frontline. My cardiologist states that contact sports and martial arts type contact with a pacemaker is not recommended and also states that nights are not good for overall health. Obviously this pacemaker is working as a constant thing.
Is anyone else in the profession? Particularly in England and Wales? What happened with you?
Also since the op I can be sat and go a little perhaps light headed (nothing major it just makes me feel a bit strange for a few seconds every so often) - is this when the pacemaker is pacing?
You know you're wired when...
You have a $50,000 chest.
Life does not stop with a pacemaker, even though it caught me off guard.
