Thought I would write to say how the second check went on the pacemaker. This is the first time the cardiologist took a print out. He said the pacemaker was working 1/3rd of the time, no percentage, but that sounded pretty good to me.
He also lowered the voltage to 1.5w so I do not feel the sensation in the stomach.
He has also turned the pacemaker down to 45 beats per minute as my base rate, and said that I could see how I go. Hopefully all will be well, if not, I will go back for an adjustment.
When he had lowered the voltage and was testing the pacemaker I did not feel my heart thumping when he turned the beat up to 90, felt weird not feeling it thumping away, but he said he had turned down the voltage and I should be more comfortable.
Anyway, running is going well and I go out two to three times a week. One long one and then two shorter. I use the cross trainer and weights on alternate days.
Thanks everyone especially Smitty and Electric Frank for all your comments. Hopefully I will get your views on the percentage I use the pacemaker. Can you confirm that it is also normal not to feel your heart beating away when they accelerate it slightly? Thanks again, will always be a worrier, but am trying hard to be a friend to the pacemaker.
