Debating Getting a Pacemaker after Surgeon Recommendation
Hello I would appreciate your input and opinion.
I am 57 years old and have a partial malfunctioning sinus node and when I run I sometimes get lightheaded. Recently I had a couple lightheaded incidents while only walking and one while sitting. I wore a heart monitor for 8 days and had a few 3-4 second heart pauses and one 6 second pause. The Electro Doctor is recommending a two chamber pacemaker for me because of the fear that I will pass out one of these days although I never have. I am concerned the Doctor is being over conservative. I have several questions:
1) Has anyone had these symtoms and would recommend getting a pacemaker?
2) Does a two chamber pacemaker limit your golf swing?
3) Can you do extensive weight training with a pacemaker?
