right shoulder rehab with pacemaker
Hi had a pacemaker implanted Aug 2019, right shoulder replacement March 6,2020. Now in rehab phase. The problem i have is when using left hand to move right shoulder. Causing my pacemaker to feel like it is moving. Have had to use left hand in a different position so it does not cross the pacemaker. The PT gal said no others have had this problem. When pulling on the pulley have to turn my left hand away from my body. Am a thin person and can feel the pacemaker near the surface, between the collarbone and armpit.
Am doing quite well now driving and almost able to do most things. Just not allowed to lift more then 5 pounds, scratch my back, raise my hand above my head. Another 8 weeks of rehab.
