Post Implant Exercise
4 days to PM day! It suddenly occurred to me that I did not ask my EP exactly what his prescription for post PM activities will be. I think I remember him saying that after 2 months I could do 'pretty much anything'. I am not a body builder by any means but I hope the usual weight machines in the gym are not going to be off limits after, say, 2 months.
I have one question: I have read all the advice in here about taking it easy post PM to avoid fracturing leads. Does this refer just to the area around the chest where the implant is situated or are we talking about the leads in the arteries (veins?). Can exercise affect the leads in the path to the heart and if so, how does a rest period help? Thanks
