New to a PM

Hi. I have that PM.  Mine was implanted in September 2019

I waited the 4 to 6 weeks before running and weight lifting.  My issue was my heart rate dropping during exercise.   The healing process was not bad.    

Mentally I am still adjusting to having a metal box in my chest.   This was all new for me as well.   I am healthy otherwise.   For reference I am a 57 year old man.  The folks on the site are very helpful.   It is nice to talk with others that understand your situation.  Welcome

Thank you for your feed back. I also workout 3 days a week with weights. My heart rate was also low. I am 70 year old woman. Does the lump where the metal box in your chest ever go down? Thank you for all of your information.

Yes, the lump will go down considerably over the next couple of months.  If it's just under the skin rather than under the muscle, there will always be somewhat of a bump. Depending on your size, it may be barely visible or rather pronounced.  It won't be nearly as big as it is now, though.

You know you're wired when...

You run like the bionic woman.

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
