auto mechanic and pacemaker
Hi everyone, i've been doing some reading up on pacemakers, as my father is having one put in this coming monday. He is an auto mechanic and owns his garage. The doctors have told him he will not be able to work anymore, however that is not in the cards for him and he does not want to do so.
The pacemaker is being installed because his heart beats way to fast. he has had the maze procedure as well as the ablation procedure. they say he is in afib 24/7 now, and this is his last resort or the doctors have said his heart will more or less blow apart.
My question for you guys is, is anyone a mechanic and have you continued to do your job after have a pacemaker put in? Is there any sort of safety vest jacket that may make it a bit safer for him if he decides he has to go back to work? any information anyone can provide or those who have had this done and have worked in this field would be greatly appreciated.
