New Rowing Machine and Irritation
I just got a very nice acqua indoor rower three days ago and have used it a bit..
After working out a little after 2 days I noticed that I felt some irritation inside my chest close to the incision. Have had the pacemaker since July 5 of last year. I have stopped using the machine because I thought that, perhaps, the resistance I had it set to was too heavy, at this stage. I have lowered the resistance but have not used that setting as yet.
I know others are using rowers successfully and I wondered if the irritation is due to the moving of the leads beneath the scar tissue. I presume that my doctor has inserted leads with a little more lengh for those times when we stretch our arms out.
I am just looking for a little bit of "real world input" before I have my doctor address this.
Thanks in advance.
